The problem is when the question is unclear (mostly I see problems with English), and you try to understand it from the code - which may be largely unrelated... In this case talking about the code - that does not compile - is possibly irrelevant, but you left with nothing, else... For me it is a way to communicate, in case when English (mine as well) is insufficient...
A 'good question' is not about adding code to the text, but writing good text and adding relevant code...

So IMHO, adding code or not is not for the OP to decide, but more for the one who try to answer if to use it or not, and how...
Skipper: We'll fix it.
Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this?
Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
