Programming help pet peeve: people refusing to provide the full code when asking a room of volunteers to help fix their bug, incompletely and inaccurately transcribing it instead (and usually omitting the cause of the bug in the process).

Like, I'm not going to waste a bunch of time and energy on playing 20 questions with you, just to satisfy your manager's weird obsession with Proprietary Company Information(tm)?

Also: if you want people to provide you with technical support on *your* terms, then FUCKING PAY THEM.
