If we're at the point where we need to worry about < vs &lt; then the question is already a catastrophe.

I would either
  1. Post a comment (not as an answer) and say "Would love to help, but you need to help us help you. Please edit the question down the the specific problem", or
  2. close it.
Everyone here works their bottoms off trying to help others, but questions that just suck the life out of someone just take the wind out of everyone's sails. Leaving them up also implicitly says questions like that are acceptable.

The other reason to post a comment is that if a comment is posted and the OP doesn't reply, or doesn't make a change, then they aren't paying attention in the first place, or simply aren't interested in putting in effort to help us help them.

We should help them help themselves, but also be ready to move on.
cheers
