grrr.... Do Your Friggin Homework...

Posted 12 November 2008 - 10:30 AM

So i was looking around the CodeProject, looking for an article on queues. And i come accross something that just picks me Off:

Quote

URGENT from:gr8est_chic time:11:45 8 Nov '06

I'm working on a project that requires me to implement a quorum library that would uses pythagoras theorum (or any other theorum) to find out if three people are with 30m of each other, and if so a quorum message is displayed.

Each person has 3 coordinates X, Y, and Z. This is supposed to be coded in C#

Any tips on how to code it??

{the same header as before}

If you have an arraylist with numerical values, how do you get the list to subtract the 1st value from the 2nd and so on..... then store the result in a variable.

Can someone please help me code this urgently

Thank you

(this was copied verbatim from the page http://www.codeproje...04050#_comments )
Why cant people on CP do some friggin homework? I see this all the time, people writing "URGENT PLZ HELP ME!!!!!11" and basically doing no work at all beforehand along with giving ZERO information.

*gets off his soapbox*

Unfortunately this does happen a lot, people try to take full advantage of communities like this. They think some sucker out there will do it for them. I am a mod on another IT site as well and I can tell you that both this site and that one take a firm stance on the homework situation.

I donít understand what these people expect to do when they get a job. Are they going to run and try to have another person do their work?

Chances are they MIGHT get a job, and when they are given something to do they are going to sit there and scratch their head and be like "Oh shit I have no idea how to do this, what the hell am I going to do?"

People are always going to be looking for the easy way out. No one wants to sit down and actually put the time and effort into anything anymore, and it's just just programming either it's with everything.

Unfortunately we get that here a lot as well, difference is we don't do their homework for them. The difference between DIC and a lot of other programming communities other than our plan to take over the world is we wont do their homework for them, which is one of the reasons I stayed here.

I have been with other communities (the aforementioned) and hated all the homework that was done for people by the other members, and it just drove me up the wall

and that pisses me off more than you can imagine. I have over the last 2-3 years applied to countless companies, small businesses, etc trying to get a programming or even remotely computer oriented job with no luck, yet people who have no idea what their doing get hired and somehow squeak by until they have the seniority to not be fired. </rant>

It is rather amusing watching someone make little or no effort ask for help and actually expect that anyone cares, even a little bit that they need it finished quickly.

I am waiting for the day I spot one of my company's mercs posting a bug or a problem given to them on the web for development. I wouldn't doubt this is how they do things.. they are horrible.

look you rude in the bird of your mother to be cripple I just give me code and I go away please please you are rude :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Yeah, it's bad enough when people ask for the answers to their homework, but it's even worse when we get posts like what I put in italics. All we do is ask them to give proof that they did something. But they consider that to be rude, so then they remind us not to be rude by using profane idioms. :P

People who try to take full advantage of these communities are simply not interested about what are doing or even worse, are trying to get a job or a high grade by cheating.

Moonbat, the problem here is the education...And the easiest way not to get angry on things like this is ignoring such people...
