Can you provide some examples?
In general, I agree with the principle of the top answer to StackOverflow's discussion of homework questions.
However, because our site works differently, perhaps we should treat homework differently.
The SO position is: it's OK to ask, but show some prior effort, and it's OK to answer, but try to lead the questioner in the right direction instead of giving a fully-formed answer.
This latter point is the difficult part for PPCG, because to have a valid answer to a challenge here you need to submit a complete, working program. There's really no way for us to avoid handing them a finished assignment without compromising the mission of this site.
So I lean toward banning homework questions when it seems obvious that they are looking for someone to do their assignment for them. E.g. if their request is language-specific, that would be a red flag that they have to write something in Scheme or Java or whatever for class. Or if it has the kind of silly constraints that indicate an arbitrary aspect of a class assignment.
However, I'd be open to accepting homework questions when the questioner honestly tells us it is such, and lets us know what language(s) they are doing the assignment in. We could have a standard policy to submit answers to such questions only in languages the student is not allowed to use. Thus, they can learn from some of the algorithms and methods employed in solutions without having the work done for them.
I am curious to see some of the recent examples you have found, because I think it will add to the discussion to be able to talk about "Is there such a thing as a good homework question vs a bad one? What makes them different?"
Edit to Add
Ok, the examples of what you're looking at are not only enlightening, they have me convinced that this entire topic is one epic troll of the Meta forum on your part.
