Hello Larry, I saw your post some time ago but have been off on vacation so am just now getting back to it. First and foremost, "simple" is subjective; what is fairly simple to one programmer may be complex to another its all just a matter of perspective.
Personally I try to answer questions that I have an understanding in or, at the very least, know where to point the poster to get the answer they need but there is a fine line between helping someone and doing something for someone. By and large I do not share large amounts of code when I post answers, I generally tell the poster HOW to accomplish something because they are not going to learn anything by simply copy and pasting my code into their app.
I have paid my dues to the research gods (and still do to this day) and I simply refuse to help people that don't try and help themselves. For example, someone that asks "How do I send email through a web application please post code" has obviously not researched the topic as this is a topic that has code samples all over the net; a simple google search on their part would of turned up copuious amounts of results. (My answer to this question would be something to the effect of: Use the System.Web.Mail namespace)
So thats my 2 cents on it, cheers!
