GeneralWhy I won't do your homework for you... PinmemberDuncan Edwards Jones16-May-08 1:19 
Getting an experienced developer to do your homework is bad for us, bad for you and bad for society.
It is bad for us because:
* Homework problems are specifically chosen to demonstrate a particular aspect of programming so those of us who have learnt that aspect (and could help) can learn nothing new from them
* It reduces our enthusiasm to help others if we are inundated with homework requests
It is bad for you because:
* Our answers are likely to be more high level than your tutor anticipates so he/she will know it is not your own work
* If we do your homework the only thing you will learn is how not to program. The worlds is already way too full of people who know how not to program.
It is bad for society because:
* If people get by with help they take the place in university, on industrial placement, and everywhere else from people who are willing to learn. So there are less people qualified to do the work, so less people to help others and pretty soon nobody can program...and we can't all be Dilbert pointy hair managers Wink | ;-)
There is some good news though. We are willing to help you to understand your homework so that you can do if you approach things from that angle we can all get along.
