Sometimes questions come up on here (for example, what is such-and-such a property of such-and-such a bike), and they leave me thinking that the poster would have spent their time better by visiting the manufacturer's web site (for instance) rather than posting a question on SE. Not so much bad questions, but questions where SE is probably not the most efficient route to finding an answer.
Maybe this could be because they're newbs and are not sure of how to find this information on the web. If this is possible. Maybe they're just hoping someone here will do the donkey work for them. Maybe something else?
My own approach is generally to drop hints (most likely in a comment) to guide the OP, but not to solve the problem for them. Other alternatives that spring to mind are (i) just answer the question for them and be done with it, or (ii) ignore the question on the grounds that another member will provide an answer.
But I'm just wondering how other people react to this type of question?
