We define a Help Vampire as:

A Help Vampire problem is the idea that some users will continually ask the same tired
questions in the hope that someone else will do their work for them, irrespective of
whether the same question has already been asked or whether they could easily find
the solution elsewhere.

Other symptoms include:

Will continue to extend the original question with continued questions, even after the
original question has been well answered.

Provides just a brief and vague overview about the problem, omitting vital information,
and assumes that answerers are able to grok the context of the poster's problem, as if
they were asking their team lead the problem directly.

Will attempt to pester an answerer with continued questions several days later, on 
unrelated matters.

And once they've sucked every last ounce of life from you, will then disappear without
so much as a thanks.
