Excuse me, but how is it (apparently) known that this is a homework question???

And why was my response deleted?

Once again, how is it known that this is a homework question? I see questions here like this all the time. i.e. What's an access-list? What's a DLCI? What's ATM? All of which COULD be homework yet none are flagged as such.

So how do you KNOW this is homework? Is that assumed of all new members?

Or is there some other piece of information that I'm not privy to that indicates this is homework?

Okay. I see what you're saying. In all the time I've been here, this is the first time I've seen this happen and I couldn't figure out how you were making the determination.

Do you monitor all new users like this or just the ones that post a bunch of questions from the start?
