I'm fine with A. I do try to specify explicitely that I'm out in pink cuckoo land when I'm posting out of my knowledge base (Windows, for me), but some of my previous posts have shown that I see no problem whatsoever in expressing my dumb ideas all over this forum. So, my answer would be: yes, post away, but specify that some salt might be required in the digestion of the answer.
If you are someone that cares about XP (I don't think you are, FWIW :) ), you might refrain from this though - I have gotten the occasional (or even systematic) downvote for posting nebulous pointers instead of definitive answers.
As an aside, reading the title to this discussion, I thought is was going to be about copyright. I'm happy it is not :).
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
