Yes, I can do that.
But I won't do that.
And I sincerely hope that nobody else does that either.
As I told you in a /msg, your use of this site to do your homework is an abuse of this site. In fact if I knew who you were and who your teacher was I would contact your teacher with these threads. Most universities have policies on cheating with punishments up to and including being expelled. I not only would contact the teacher with full knowledge that this might happen, but hoping it would.
Think back to the story of the difference between giving people fish and teaching them to fish. This site is all about teaching people to fish. You are demanding that we give you fish. If we do, what will you have learned? That if you just abuse all reasonable netiquitte and demand enough, your gaping jaw will have fish shoved in it? I don't want you to learn that. I don't want that to happen. I don't want to see people with a legitimate desire to learn being displaced by beggars looking for handouts.
So do your own damned homework. If you see something that you don't understand, if you have bugs, etc, then this is a great resource. Use it appropriately. But avoiding doing your homework (which was given to you primarily to help you learn) does not fit what this site is for, and does not fit within the bounds of academic honesty.
If you use a little common sense then you won't wind up filling Worst Nodes to overflowing and you will get some useful help. If you don't?
