Beginners are going to be vague, and if they are asking about multiplying Textboxes, then Sub routines and Functions are not going to do anything but confuse them, I see that stuff all the time, I just learned abut subs and functions, 14 weeks into my Intro class.
I will admit, I do see people saying """I need a Form that does x, and then y, multiplies that by z, z^2 up to z^1784657 and puts each answer into an array, and then split the array into an 2 alphabetical lists output each line to a textbox, only one per form, then output that answer divided by 2 in a message box.OH YEAH!!! It can't do a, if b is true, and it cant do c if d is true. Thanks ahead of time I need it by Monday."""
There is a difference between them and the person saying they tried all they know how to do and are frustrated. Giving a line or two of code to help someone get on pace isn't going to kill you in your sleep, or will it?
Most of the time it's just a word flipped around. newb learned something to pass on as they build up knowledge
