I think that we are not responsible for what other people do with our
information.  I also believe the University would agree if we ever became
embroiled with them in a cheating issue.

Honestly, I think it's nice of you to be so thoughtful of their academic
well being.

Yah, I think you're right.

Personally, I think it's the student's responsibility not to cheat,
whether on purpose or out of ignorance, and their responsibility to deal
with the repercussions of cheating.

I suspect that if it's an obvious plea to do someone's homework for them
(as with Bill's tic tac toe code requests) then no one here will be
terribly inclined to be helpful.  If it's sly enough to not trigger
anyone's "You're trying to free-load off of me" sensors, then how can we
be found at fault for simply answering a question?
