It's nice to help other ppl. The first time I came to this forum I needed help. I posted a question and in about 5 mins there were 3 replies. And I got my problem solved. It felt great to get it solved in such a short time. And I have suffered from computer not working properly. (haven't we all at some point) So I want to help ppl with these kind of problems. It doesn't take too much of my time to post a few posts, and it's nice to know that u helped someone to get their problem fixed.

And about "Cursing,SPAM, disrespect, and other things I can't think of now" that's why we have mods.

Or the fact that when you help others, you are also helping yourself in remembering terminology, latest technology, and solutions.

Because we help each other out, when one of us has a problem we like it when people help us so we return the favor.

Does David even? Or would they need to ask one of you? Off-Site Storage Area indeed... because I said Sexual? Might as well have saved the Post...

On the helping note though, I'd like to think we help people because there's always somebody who knows more about something than you. If you know more about something than somebody, you should try and teach that somebody. Just as you would hope somebody with more knowledge of some other thing, or indeed the same thing, will teach you when you want to know something. Knowledge needs to be passed around, or it becomes stagnant even in the minds of those who once knew it, and wastes away.
