Everyone reacts from his or her particular perception. The assignment
is in plain English so I doubt the problem is language related, so in
my perception, the question is laziness.
And you have to respect that.

Exactly my point, thanks:

With my humble IQ of 2, his e-mail reads "Please do my homework for me".

It's a good thing you are not! IMHO awarding laziness is not a good thing.

The only one attacking here, my friend, is you.

My mail was very straight forward: go do your homework first; then
come back and ask some intelligent question.

I would gladly accept you criticism if I hadn't pointed the OP in the
right direction.

But if it's a question of "style" then the question becomes, where did
you get your education? because any of my teachers would have done the
same or worse:
"go away and come back with a specific question; don't come here with
you assignment and expect me to do it for you!", "but here, read this
and then come back"

Yeah well you should have looked yourself first, the faculty staff is
And, as I stated in my original reply, they don't post their mails. I
do my homework first.
