On Asking for Help

I've noticed a disturbing trend on Server Fault lately. People are asking for help with things that they have not tried to find the answer to themselves. Some of the regulars on the site have speculated that it's concentrated within certain cultures. Others have said that it's from a younger inexperienced generation that want quick answers. I'm not sure if either of those are accurate, but it's got to stop for the long-term success of our profession.
