I have noticed an increased number of questions that seem to be verbatim copies of essay questions from fairly basic networking courses. The most recent was a request fora discussion of the difference between L2 and L3 MPLS VPN's and goes as far as requesting citations and the like. I am wondering the following:
1.) Is there an ethical issue with providing apparently complete answers to what are obviously questions directly from coursework? On the one hand I know that we are providing knowledge that can be used in a number of ways (including plagiarism) and that its use is not our responsibility. On the other hand the questions are often blatant and are generally going to yield very generic answers whose ongoing value may be questionable.
2.) Since homework questions tend to fall outside the day-to-day of server/network admins would it make sense for there to be a separate SE site for folks seeking this sort of help?
