As someone who is learning, and actually trying to learn, I am able to both agree and disagree with this.
Yes, a lot of people are probably just trying to get something done, and aren’t very interested in how it works.
Others learn by example, and actually study code snippets, and implement them in their code/ future code.
Usually I get a one or two word answer that leads me to google, which leads me to incomplete gm13 documentation, or outdated gm12 documentation, and a ton more questions. So I spend hours sifting through any addon that I think might use the code I need, sometimes finding an example, sometimes not.
I could be a lot more productive if someone who knew the answer, and was already at it writing a reply, would spend the extra 30 seconds to explain something rather than try to be witty or elusive about it.
Either way, I am grateful for anyones help, though. One word or a paragraph/ snippet.
