Discussion on: Why you need to learn to write a sorting algorithm

I'm not advocating "refusing to do a task", btw. I was more getting at demonstrating (without being too pedantic about it) that you can evaluate what you need to do to solve a problem, and how you might go about finding a solution. For something like sorting, Googling or looking on Stack Overflow is likely to be sufficient for most problems. If it was something esoteric, then more effort might be required.
