GeneralI'm ashamed to be a noobie Pinmembergavindon30-Mar-11 4:52 
Seriously, I know this has been talked about over and over here and on many other forums. But the amount of "gimme code" posts I see now make me ashamed to be considered a noobie to programming. It makes me ever more hesitant to even bother to ask a question myself because I hate to be associated with that behavior.
I mean it's horribly lazy, insulting and just pure ignorant to try and grab a block of code , cut and paste into project, and then say "your code didn't work, why?"
Is it so terribly hard to do a little reading? I myself will spend at least a few days and probably read over 200 websites and blogs/posts/tutorials before giving in and asking for help.
Would it really kill some of these lazy people to read at LEAST two or three? Yeah I know I'm ranting and beating that dead horse with that same ole stick, but I read a new one this morning on CP that had two different back to back "gimmes" and it really pisses me off because I try to LEARN what I'm doing not just hack together blocks of a dozen other peoples code to make something work.
Programming is a race between programmers trying to build bigger and better idiot proof programs, and the universe trying to build bigger and better idiots, so far... the universe is winning.
