Is asking question without posting answer selfish?

kirktolliver
I give a lot to find my own answers and ask many different site forums questions, when I need to. I feel like a ****** bag. i'd try to read someone esles questions sometimes, but i be so involved and cluster f$%ked to really think and take the time to answer any. I'm trying to be pateint enough to think of someonelse sometimes. i really thank all of you who help people in need you guys and girls are the true GURUs.

THANKS A ****-of-ALot!

P.s Feel free to make me feel worst>

    You're probably real ugly as well! :^0

    Hey, get real, don't go putting yourself down so much.

    You're contributing. Right? What more can a forum ask for other than folk contributing something.

    Let us do that for you... ;\

    After all, without people asking questions, how can "we" answer them? B-)

    Just make sure you follow the ESR guide for asking smart questions.

    TechRepublic is a resource. How and when you use it is your business. I have been a lurker quite often. I don't get inspired to help for periods of time. It also can be daunting to post answers to questions.
    Takes special people to make this site what it is. It's your call, just don't be mean or nasty we already have that position filled.

    None of us would learn anything without asking questions.

    Providing answers helps keep us "on our toes"

    Not everyone has the capacity or knowledge to answer questions. It took me a long time to gain the <b>confidence</b> to post answers to questions that I am familiar with. I have gotten out of my depth a couple of times but it has worked out in the end. I try and work out what the question is and sometimes that isn't easy with the information that has been supplied by some of the posters. Everyone has a different level of knowledge and we all had to start somewhere. I know enough to be downright dangerous but I am also careful. Most times anyway.

    But seriously I find that by attempting to help others I learn a lot more about what I need to know. But I only do this when I have the time available too.

    When I'm rushed off my feet I don't spend as much time at TR as I would like to but then again that's life. We all do what we can and just leave it at that.

    I always try to keep a 1:1 ration or better. If i ask a question i have to answer at least 1. Its only fair. But sometimes all the questions are out of my league so i kinda feel like a heel. Just try to be a part of the community and all is well!

    every once in a while I'll jump in....

    but for the most part, most of the questions can be answered without having to ask on here if one just did a little research. Don't want to do what someone else is to lazy to do.

    Others seem like their made up questions just to see what answers are given. waste of my effort to answer those.

    not too many people on here have your knowledge on Networking. Every time that you post to a question I actually learn something. You are a great tutor and your answers are always clear and to the point. I have been wondering why you have backed off and I appreciate your stance. Looks to me like you have worked it out. G'donya

    I still look at the Q&A forum every day, so if I do see something of interest or one of the regulars like yourself post a question, I'll jump right in. But for the really easy stuff that someone could get an answer from microsoft help and support if they just go there, I'll not post.

    that I had noticed that you were getting selective. I was also getting worried that you maybe packing it in. We can't allow you to do that you know.

    that I am subscribed to when I came across this one. Here we have someone who appears to be conscious of the fact that he/she is not making any contributions and asking a question and then leaves without so much as a thank you. Nocturnal?, eats roots and leaves.
