It seems to me that there is a lot less of posting example code these days and more responses along the lines of 'go figure it out'. I understand that people who come here for the sole purpose of having their homework done for them and the reason to ignore those, however what about those that are just trying to learn the language and so far have not run into a tutorial that has clicked with them. I know I have recently come across posts where people have stated they don't understand something or how to accomplish a task and many responses were vague at best; things along the lines of "use a loop" and "do this". More so we have begun to chastise some people for providing sample code in the form of a complete program that can be directly copied and compiled.
I am not starting a flame post nor do I have any grievances with the members of this board. I am just looking for maybe some discussion on this by some of the senior members so I can understand what the current philosophy is here.
