Our community has taken a liking to re-enforcing the misconception that ServerFault is a script writing service. Examples here and here are just a couple recent threads I can point to.
I have no issue with someone who tries, or someone who posts what they've read and just doesn't get it. I have issue with those who don't try at all (or make no indication of their efforts in their posts). It's been my understanding that SF does not condone the "give me da codez" requests. So why is our community so freely answering these?
By responding to these questions before getting what attempts the asker has made only reinforces the behavior. Answers are provided by seasoned and nonseasoned SF members alike. Is this what we've become? How are we to address this issue going forward?
