    Is it OK or not, to get others to do your coursework and donkeywork by asking questions about a subject and keeping a thread going by feigning genuine interest and giving out false gratitudes?

    If this has happened to you, how does it make you feel?

    What do you think about the people who do this?

    How is having people discuss an issue getting them to do your homework?

    Collecting information so that a person can write an assignment is just that ... I do not see a problem with it

    Discussing an issue is fine. However I'm talking about asking a series of questions deliberately disguised to lead others into giving you the answers for a coursework/homework.

    Well by and large the TSR community is very good at asking the OP questions to guide them through the question, rather than explaining it flat out, specifically to avoid this sort of thing.

    At the end of the day it'll only hurt them anyway

    Why make so much effort just so you don't have to do it? Doesn't that kind of defeat the point of not doing your homework..

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. Posting a link to a site which explains something difficult well?
    Iirc you work in education so you're probably quite attuned to detecting when a slacker is trying to get spoonfed. The op seems to be asking how to know how much help to give.

    Oh I see

    On Maths we have a rule that says we should not give out full solutions

    I guess that is harder on arts/humanities fora
