No, they are not asking for it, they are asking for help.

I chose not to reply because I didn't think I could do it kindly.  I also know I've asked totally bone-headed questions 
in the past (although they seemed legitimate when I was asking them).

In short, this list is not the place to be condescending nor mean-spirited.  If the urge strikes, pass it up and move to 
the next post.
