I'm seeing a lot of questions where someone is essentially asking, "Can you perform this task for me?" Often it is, more specifically, "Please write a test to cover this code."

This form of question rankles me and I used to think there was something specifically in the guidelinesguidelines about making an attempt first, but I do not see anything that says you should attempt to solve a problem before asking it, per se.

In my estimation, this type of question does not meet the Search and Research standard nor the Make it Relevant to Others standard. I am not sure, however, if I should flag these posts. If so, what flags apply?
