This recent question was put on-hold by a moderator. The reason we (our site) gave to the OP is:
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
"This question should include more details than have been provided here. Please edit to add the research you have done in your efforts to answer the question, or provide more context. See: Details, Please."
Here is the question:
What is the difference between revenge and avenge? [on hold]
Please explain me. I tried the dictionaries but they do not help.
The OP states clearly that they've tried dictionaries, but the dictionaries can't help. (Hence, the OP posted the question here.)

At times, little beyond dictionaries help. In fact, simply typing the same question on Google gives great answer like this, this and this! – Maulik V♦ 33 mins ago
Much as I agree with Maulik, that it's not that hard to find a similar (or even identical) question on the web, I can't help but wonder if we should forbid the OP to ask such a question, or what more research we should require of the OP. Isn't it true that almost all questions here can be found elsewhere on the web as well, most with just a quick search? (Quality of the answers on the web may vary, though.)
So, I'd like to hear our opinions about this (off-topic) line we draw on our site. How much or how little research (in general, not only the question mentioned above) does an OP have to show us before we consider it on-topic or off-topic?
