Q&A or anything else, it it's available it will be abused.

One can shut down everything that is misused and, eventually end up with nothing.
You can also accommodate those who are making proper use of a facility, and ignore the rest.
One might even cagoule the abusers (gently) into doing their own work or they're really headed into the wrong field. Just sending them the answer's not going to help them as much as having them discover it.

All of us once, now, and in the future, may need a nudge in the right direction. One of the things (most of us, I hope) have learned is how to dig in or stand back, trying to discover the problem - and thereby discover the answer.

Primarily, if I answer, I'll tell the Q'er what they need to do to find their problem and point them along the way with hints/suggest/&etc. so they can do it (and end up the better for it) or try to find someone who will "help" with a direct answer so they can avoid learning anything. Often links to W3Schools - only the laziest won't spend a day to become more than they were in the morning.
