I should really post a rant about which things regarding SO you should *actually* be upset about. Not all of the things like "they closed my question because it asked for help on my homework".
Because hating on SO seems to be a bandwagon but nobody knows the actually bad things SO does.
I've never participated much on SO. I've asked maybe 3 questions and each time been presented with:
"Can you post some code" by folks who I think are in such a rush to provide an answer to a specific thing and give you a quick bit of code ... they really miss that it was more of a conceptual question about dealing with X, Y, Z.
Beyond that I don't feel like I need to really participate, I almost always find something like what I'm looking for and maybe that's all SO is as far as value goes.
Well that and boxing stupid jquery answers....
theabbie389648dYou wish questions were remotely as good as they were in old days
