Another part of being a professional is internally processing those answers into some form of lasting knowledge... "Homework" questions don't bother me because they're homework per se; they bother me because I don't think much learning is taking place. I have a sneaking suspicion that my answer is getting cut'n'pasted straight from the web to the assignment, w/o spending much time bouncing around in the questioners head.
Its the difference between:
- Can someone give me the answer to #3?
- Can someone help me understand what question #3 is trying to teach me?
I can almost *guarantee* that these nearly identical questions would evoke vastly different responses from the perlmonks community.
