I don’t know what is funny about that. Today there was someone asking how to show a view file… answering this question won’t help them. What would help them is if they buggered off the forum and either read the docs or followed some tutorials.
If a newbie programmer comes along and asks a really simple question and says “I have read this… I have tried this… I get this error… help! That’s cool. It shows they have made the effort and have got stuck. We have all been there at one point or another. These people need to be helped.
However too many questions are like this.
I don’t know what Google is. I can’t be bothered to read documentation. I don’t want to learn CI, I want to write an application. Now don’t teach me, just give me the code I need to solve this problem. I will then come back in 5 minutes with an almost identical problem.
The upshot of this is if you have a real problem which you are genuinely stuck on your thread is soon buried and is typically unanswered and soon buried.
