in reply to Do my homework for me!

Personally I prefer if someone just states:

I have this HW assignment and I need help.

This makes us all look good! The author shows that they are trying to learn but may be really having difficulty. And they don't think we are so stupid that they can pass their HW off to us without us realizing it.

If someone is upfront like this and takes the hints we suggest then I think it would be better that we make sure they have all the resources to complete the assignment.

    Anonymous Mark,

    Usually, those that come right out and state they need help with homework don't ask for the entire project to be done for them. I have no qualms about helping those in need that deserve a little push in the right direction.

    The problematic users are those that post textbook requirements for a problem and expect a solution by posting the same question repeatedly. That's not looking for help; that's being an ass.
