Slightly off-topic, but one thing that really bothers me is when people post very vague questions, provide little or no information on what their intent is and what they have done thus far to try and fix the problem. This isn't a defence of sites like SO where you often see people being berated for their post, it's never okay to blatantly put people down because they don't understand how something works, or how to proceed on fixing a problem. However, I think one can be forgiven for getting a little agitated when someone does not take the time to submit a meaningful, clear and organized post. The "I do this, but it doesn't work..." phrase we see all too often is, dare I say, an insult to the people who volunteer their time, energy and skills freely to help others resolve their problem(s). The other I see quite often is the "...here's my homework question, do it for me..." type of post.

I think we also have a canned "Do My Homework" entry, but I'm too lazy to check.
