Today I came across these two questions, this one and this one, where the questioner has simply attached the photo, or may I say screenshot, of the whole page, which essentially appears to be on a phone.
There have been past instances of such behaviour, even after the intervention by the Moderators.
One of our main practice here is to add the references (and sources), but shouldn't users make a little bit more effort in typing such questions? It is just one pair of sentences in the middle of the entire image which concerns the question. So why distract users by providing the whole page?
I don't know why people are so lazy that they can't write/type their questions in the box along with the reference sentences. By reference sentences I mean the sentences where they encountered this usage, or a sentence they made by themselves which uses such words/phrases, etc. I understand it would be difficult when there is big paragraph which needs to be known to answer comprehension type questions. I would say that is fair enough in that case, since it would take insane time to write it down from a textbook in your hand. However it was a (pair of) stand-alone sentence/s in this case.
One might say that they should have included just the cropped part of the screenshot, yes I agree, that can be way around the chaos. But why can't they take the effort in typing it out?
Why the question rose in my mind, is because I had seen a question getting closed because of such a thing, wherein the questioner had simply just attached a related picture and asked something (which I do not recall properly).
Hence my question, should such practice be discouraged or encouraged? Or should we let it be? Because I am pretty sure my comment on one of the questions was paid no heed.
