I think I have the answer to this:
First you get a self proclaimed expert who says it is absolutely wrong to ask for other people to write code for you (a la iamthewee) in this discussion here--> http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/cpp/threads/467572/question-a-car-class
Then you find this self proclaimed expert begging for other people to give them code here--> http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/cpp/threads/144681/way-to-do-this
Generally speaking, whenever you find a narcissist who thinks they know it all and claims to be an expert you also find a hypocrite with an amoral personality.
Personally my experience is that the less you know the more you are capable of learning.
With "Experts" like these on this site it isn't surprising to me that honest people with actual good intentions (more than just to propagate their own fantasies of grandiose and or superior intellect) who offer help on here are branded as unhelpful and verbally chastised by those same "Experts".
Just wanted to let everyone know on here that these so-called experts aren't always what they appear to be and anyone who would ask for code and then tell others who would do the same thing that they are bad or ignorant in some way isn't really an expert in anything at all except serving their own small self interests.
One final note is that this message about the experts on here (obviously) isn't aimed at any of the actually helpful people like ddanbe and ancient dragon (who I have seen many helpful comments by and found no evidence of hypocracy from) so you can disregard this post. I have a lot of respect for people who ask for and or offer help to others, but I sincerely disdain those with small minds who think that they know everything. Anyway, I don't think I am going to use this site anymore and will have to find one which offers less negativity and more help. In the few posts which I have had on here asking for help I have generally had to solve the problem myself (and that is always the best way right?) and when I haven't been able to I appreciate the help I was given. However, one rotten apple can ruin a barrel so I think I'll just find another barrel to swim in, thanks. Don't bother responding here becasue I'm sure it will just be more negativity by those incapable of being both intelligent and civil so...
