When am I helping vs doing someone's homework for them? Answered
I try to answer all the questions that people post to my 'ibles. (At least all the ones I have a useful answer for)
I also know that some of my projects are being taught in schools and universities, which is really really great!
Every once and a while I get a question that sounds like a homework question. I'm not entirely sure it is, there might be cross-language difficulties or other reasons for the awkward phrasing and unusual specificity in the question, etc.
If it's not a homework question I want to answer it. If it is a homework question... well I don't do people's homework for them.
I know there are lots of teachers (and students) here, what should I do? Ignore it? Smartass answer? Something else?
