It depends. I solve problems for a living. I'm a Lactation Consultant and when I see a client, I need to diagnose what the problem is, figure out a treatment plan that will work for that mother and baby, and present these things, along with giving her data and beneficial help in a positive way.
I try not to solve the problems of people who don't ask.
Now, the question is, when people ask for "help" on discussion boards, do they really want "help" or do they just want everyone to agree with them?
