I agree with Dutchy ME81. Yes, sometimes I think, 'Hey! I've looked this up, why can't you?' Then I remember that not everyone's minds work in exactly the same way; some are quite happy hunting up answers in dictionaries, thesaurus, atlas, etc, while others get themselves completely flummoxed when the word they seek does not come easily.
There are those who do think it is cheating to use the internet to find answers. Why? There is such a wealth of information 'out there'. I have multiple reference books and use them often but I also use some of the various on-line reference sites if I need to, and get so absorbed when I google and start to follow up cross-references. I don't regard this as cheating - it's just another reference tool that adds to my knowledge.
And if I can pass some of that on to someone who asks for it, why not? Certainly, they could look it up, and they would probably retain more knowledge if they did, but if they have not trained themselves to do so by now, they probably never will. Are we supposed to take a 'stiff cheese' attitude and direct them to the nearest cake shop?
We are not in school where the teacher is going to give us a rap over the knuckles for copying someone else's work. (Surely looking up a dictionary is 'copying someone else's work'.) There is no exam at the end of the year that could determine our futures. There are just a few prizes, most are good, some are very good - but there are none on offer that would tempt me to stifle someone else's chances.
I look at it as a 'pay forward' thing.
This is in no way intended as a criticism of you ME81, or anyone else. You are entitled to your own opinion. (Don't you hate that sentence? It sounds as if I am really saying 'My opinion is so much more superior than your completely incorrect one'. This is NOT so.) I am just waffling on about why I like to help out with answers. (I suppose there is also a bit of an ego boost when I can.)
Best of luck with your entries!
