I think you are missing the point. I have no objection to helping anyone, particularly if its a last difficult clue.
If you venture onto the otherside, you will see the same people keep asking for clues for the same crossword. A couple of weeks ago, someone asked for 10 clues in half an hour and they only had one letter in each. the rest were question marks. its noticeable that this happens more and more for prize crosswords.
I very rarely ask for help but I am always grateful when it comes.
So what I am saying is people should at least make the effort before requesting answers. Generally this happens on this site, where most people are really struggling, but not on the other side where in the end, others do most of the work. Where's the fun in that?
