Re: There should be a few rules for SO

" anyone daft enough to *want* to do X is exactly the worst possible person to tell *how* to do X"

There was some code operation I was trying to figure out recently and all google results , mostly at SO SE etc were all people wanting to do the same thing for different reasons . stupid reasons . so all the answers were telling them the easier / better . proper way of doing what they wanted to do.

Didnt help me though
