This Meta question is prompted by this question about the difference between front country and back country camping. Before an edit, it started with the statement "I have an assignment about..." which made it clearly a homework question (HQ). Even if it were not clearly an HQ it shows zero research. But put the research aspect aside for the moment.
Between us, @Charlie Brumbaugh and I gave good and well-received answers and may have done the OP's assignment for him, which, in the long run, does not help him.
My justification for answering the Q is in my answer to What are the goals of TGO. I said
To foster love and respect for The Great Outdoors, and to promote ways to defend and protect TGO
Turning off a newbie by telling him to go do some research before we will deign to answer, and then voting to close, seems counterproductive also, although if this question had been asked on English Language and Usage (as it could have been), that is exactly what I would have done, only more nicely.
So, do we: (1) answer any on-topic question that has a good answer; or (2) don't answer if it is a self-confessed homework assignment; or (3) don't answer if it shows no research at all, and it easily could have?
