This remark was said to me awhile ago, perhaps last year, when I was asking for a help on a programming question on Stack Overflow.
The jist was:
"you are suggesting a solution to a problem before you even understood what the problem is."
I have noticed that this is a common issue on Stack Overflow, with beginner programmers (like me) trying to suggest a solution to our issue before we even understand the problem we are having, like trying to solve world hunger before we even have the money to do so or the socio-economic knowledge.
What is this word/phrase?
