Meaning of 'Quick ' question?

Whenever I see the words 'quick' posted in the title of a question, I usually find the question is anything but quick and often long and complicated. Why do people feel the need to say 'quick'? It puts me off wanting to give any help at all. Does this annoy anyone else or is it just grumpy old me?
