When Stackoverflow goes looney like a leftie

I was recently doing reviews on Stackoverflow when a ‘go home you’re drunk’ page ‘caught’ me. Lookie here:

stackoThis was supposed to be a test to catch ‘speeding’ reviewers. I admit that C/C++ are not my strongest points but I can understand code in C/C++ and rarely even write in them.

I guess they went overboard this time.

  1. That was supposed to be a question and it isn’t. It looks like a fragment from a discussion. There is no goal specified, so the question should be closed if the requester does not edit it.

    • The question is well expressed in the title: “How many times does a number/character occurs in a string literal?”.

      What I understand is that the user wants to know how to count the occurrences of certain characters.

      Definitely the English skills of the writer are not top notch but still this doesn’t disqualify the question, IMHO.

  2. Ala nu e modul in care trebuie pusa o intrebare pe stack overflow sau orice forum in general.
    Omu’ prectic cere sa-i rezolve altii tema de casa la scoala. 🙂 Nu spune cum a incercat sa rezolve problema, unde s-a impotmolit, nu da un fragment de cod ca sa arate ca a incercat ceva etc..

    La “intrebarea” lui (“How many times does a number/character occurs in a string literal?”)
    raspunsul nu poate fi decat 42 sau 100 – asta vrea sa afle? 🙂

    • Mie mi s-a părut o întrebare formulată într-o manieră de joasă calitate, într-adevăr.

      Unde nu sunt de acord cu părerea lor hardcode-ată este că ar trebui neapărat închisă. Există opțiunea de a o edita și îmbunătăți. Altfel, închiderea întrebărilor este o măsură destul de serioasă atunci când de obicei nu prea se mai poate salva nimic.
