appreciated for their motivation, yes. but what if the answer is flat
out wrong or misleading? this happens quite a bit and those bad answers
have to be countered along with answering the original issue. i am not
for classifying repliers here but i do recommend some self restraint
among those who aren't sure about their given answer. or at least couch
their post with 'this may work but i am learning too' or something

and even experts make mistakes. the goal here is to get correct and
quality answers to newbies and that means posters need to know the
quality of their answers and to hold back if they are not sure.
