I agree. But there are some that don't fall into that category. I can't count the number of times I have seen people seeking "help" that have no real desire to learn themselves. Personally, if I can see something salvageable from such a request I don't ban and try to prompt them to think a bit more. Sometimes it works... most of the time it doesn't. But then again this game isn't for everyone.
