Well, as Gregg said, some folks don't like that. And in that case they told you they don't like that. People on other forums often express their dislike in a different way than we do here.

Maybe you're fairly certain you know the answer but want to check a spec to make sure you don't give a wrong answer. Maybe before giving the answer you want to test it so you create a small program try the code that you are about to paste to the forum.
Picture doing all of this and then discovering that the original poster already got the same answer to this question on another forum, or on a different site altogether.
Try to imagine how much effort you would be willing to spend helping that person out with their next question.
