That's interesting. A lot of people I read answers from may be like that -- they have speciailized knowledge others don't, and reading their answers is itself a form of education. I come here to learn, because my skills are more ground-level. You make me realize that some people post precisely for people like me.

The general assumption is that QA forums (usenet groups, mailing lists, web forums, etc) provide a service for people who have questions that require answers. My view is that the *real* value of these forums, in fact, is that they provide a service for people who like to *answer* questions (for whatever reason).

Well ... that might be taking it a little too far. Let's just say that "it works both ways" ...

I *do* know that I've learnt much more from answering questions, than I have from asking questions :-)

Cheers,
Rob

    [ambrus]: MLX: if it's a work email, then it's probably not Uncle Sam that matters, but what the account managing server at work thinks your name is. Those can differ. For example, we've had two co-workers with identical real name at one point,
    [ambrus]: so one got a stupid suffix in the email account (people have email address based on their real name here usually).
