There is a category of question that appears here distressingly often. Here is my Socratic description of how it goes. I'm going to use a degree of sarcasm that I don't often use on this site. At the end I'm proposing how to handle such questions.
The questioner writes:
This is my first post here. I've heard that there's a thing called Music. I don't know anything about it. I heard about some aspect of music or musical instruments that puzzles me. I've never seen one of these instruments, or held one of these instruments, or tried to play one of these instruments, but I read something about the nature of sound in a physics book that seems not to jibe with my ignorant conceptualization of how a musical instrument should behave. So since I have time on my hands, I'm going to post a question here: "Why are things like this and not some other way?" not having any idea how to phrase the question correctly, and ask all you knowledgeable people to spin your wheels for awhile trying to answer my awkward question and flail around trying to educate me about something that I'm totally ignorant of and, let's be honest, not really that keen on learning about anyway since I'm just idly wasting my time and yours, too.
Over the last year in my participation on this site, I have been sucked into attempting to write answers to questions like these, in contradiction to the advice of a historical personage I admire who said, "Do not cast your pearls before swine."
Now my New Year's resolution is not to respond to these sorts of questions, not to try to edit them to make any amount of sense, and just to give them a "Close" vote for "Not Constructive".
If any of the rest of you derive some amusement from trying to distribute clues to the clueless and relatively harmless trolls that ask them, go right ahead. Happy New Year.
