When I see some question when OP doesn't show any effort, just throws the exercise in, but is something relatively simple, in my conception, I answer it just giving general directions, not elaborating too much. However, it is clear to me that said question will be closed soon, for being "off-topic", or whatever other reason.
My question is: Like here, for example, it happened that the same question appeared for me when I was reviewing Close Votes, and, since it was indeed not showing any effort, I voted to close it. Is my behavior wrong, by doing this? (answering it, but voting to close it after)
It is considered not coherent, in any way? Is there another approach I can take so I can improve my participation on MSE?
