I see a lot of questions on this site, that are not properly framed. We get several every day that ask for a basic understanding of a doctrine or view point without a narrowing convention.
This makes me thing of a basic Stack Overflow question asking principal: "Show us your code, and tell us where you're stuck." This is best summarized in the comment "What have you tried?"
The essential message is "we don't write code for you" and the reading behind that is that we're not here to give you all the answers, we want to help you solve your specific problem and help you learn something along the way.
Is there a similar minimum standard we should hold questioners to on this site? What should our minimum research effort be? We've talked a lot about what makes a good question, and what makes a good answer, but ultimately, where is the line in the sand for "this question shows a fundamental lack of research effort?"
