Re: I am looking for some help doing A with B
While rather annoying at times on overly simplistic questions, a lot of people asking questions, that have already been answered, are usually asking them with their own twist. How does situation A effect me because I am from B and I have done C? Where all the other posters were from D and had done E instead of C. This is common on Visa/immigration questions. I remember when I first joined for information on visa issues I search through the forum multiple times but I wanted information on my specific situation, not someone elses.
As for saying that people are asking to be spoonfed, c'mon! If your annoyed by the question, then ignore it. You have no obligation to go about helping people and no one will think of you less for doing so. So someone wants to know where to shop in Switzerland because in their hometown they ate a certain special diet, or are looking for specific foods. Is it really that much of a pain in your Arsch to say that Migros carries Mexican food, or that Coop stocks Canadian Maple Syrup, or Aldi sources it's kiwis from Israel? It may seem obvious to you, but for someone who's already drowning from the culture-shock it's quite a different story.
The two things that do piss me off on this matter, are those that enter the forum without an introduction, and those who do not thank by post/pm or button. If I get the inclination that the poster has no intention of sticking around then I don't bother. But those posts/posters are quite clear and easy to avoid.
