When researching a problem on the Internet, a lot of times you will find message boards and blot posts to be very valuable. If during your research, you come across a post which shares the problem you are having, only post a reply to it if you have something valuable to add to the troubleshooting process.
Often times, you will see a problem explained in great detail only to find a slew of follow up posts which basically say “I’m having the same problem”. This adds nothing to helping the issue get resolved. Instead, only post if you have something constructive to say such as troubleshooting steps you tried or any additional information the original poster didn’t supply. Doing this allows others to have a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing which hopefully leads to a solution.
