I believe you are missing what's actually at issue here.
Lets just look at this thread:
New poster asks help for a homework problem without saying so
Different list members express concern/annoyance with this
[NO technological (3 different technologies) issues here yet]
This -- annoyance+answers -- continues for while until it morphs into GG-annoyance
The *context* of the earlier annoyance -- kid asking for homework help
without clearly saying so -- is lost in the GG annoyance.
Now GG is clearly annoying
As are kids who ask for homework help without saying so
¿¿Whats the connection??
