I only found out about MSE around the end of my degree, so I didn't get to ask that many questions. However, had I known about it earlier, I could see myself wanting to ask questions, having thought about them, but having nothing tangible to say.
Forcing me to show my work, would be forcing me to show absolute gibberish with no hope of salvation and possibly, as a consequence, get my question closed as being unclear.
Recently I saw this happen with another user (who is clearly willing to make an effort). The question was closed as being unclear, even though its clarity is transparent and judging by the OP's comments, sharing his work wouldn't do much good either.
This question is specifically addressed to anti-PSQ people.
What could this user have done differently, considering their technical knowledge limitation (i.e. not having any proper work to share), to ask the question in a way to minimize the chances of it being closed?
Edit: Clarification - Many people mentioned context as if somehow lack of context was the reason why the question was closed. I don't understand this. It was hinted by a user that, despite the fact that officially the only reason for the question being closed was that it was unclear, the real reason was lack of context.
If this is the case, then one very important assumption behind my question doesn't hold. People really should choose the proper reason for closure, how else are people supposed to know how to ask a good question?
