The difference between help-needer and guide-needer and etc

Continuing from my last post, I figured that I need to clarify a few important points before I'm being classified as someone evil on the same league as Osama Bin Laden.

1) I don't help people, does not mean I don't guide people. There's a world of difference between people who expect you to do his/her entire final year project/assignment/tutorial and people who just need your guidance. I have my respect for people who just need some guidance. I however, have ZERO respect for the other. What for, since he/she expect to gain something without doing anything.

2) I still do freelance. Well, despite all that, I still do freelancing. I just don't do charity. But sometimes it's a bit hard to difference between the two. Let's start with a few examples. "I want you to do an e-commerce web site that can buy/sell books. Like lah. I will give u RM 100 to do it. Want ah?" - This is a charity. "Eh.. can you help me do this assignment a? I spent you eat lo..." - This is also a charity. "Can you develop a cinema ticketing system for us? We (Company XXX) will pay you RM 5,000 for this. - That is freelance (If it conforms to market price).

3) My purpose is not to offend people. I don't blog to get attention. Or to blog with the intention to offend weaker people. To me, that is not my purpose. Instead, this is their choice, their own doing. That said, NO one wish to be weak. Well, that's mostly true. HOWEVER, like the saying goes, "everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die to get there," the problem is, every computer science students wants to be god programmer. But ask them to spend 11+ hours everyday infront of the computer screen doing programming exercises, reading programming techniques, reading books on new programming languages, analyzing/modifying other people's millions lines long code and etc, they say you must be crazy. The thing is, every rewards comes with a price. If you pay the price, you reap the rewards. It's as simple as that. If you pay peanuts, you get peanuts. That's not cruelty, that's reality.
