Well, the concept of spoon-feeding information to newcomers is a case-to-case issue, IMO
If you ask me, this is my way of paying back gratitude to a user who helped me before; I was in the same situation as Ambrie
was more than a decade ago, when I needed help with my WinXP -- and in those days of dial-ups, the concept of Forums weren't like today, it was more of a message board
I couldn't remember the username, let alone that user's gender, but whoever he/she was did a lot for me -- from simple posts teaching me the tools to have ( it was from that user I learned about MBAM
) as well how to maintain my gear in the best way possible, linking other sites by giving clues where there were and so on
I don't know if that user is still around the Web, but the least I can do is return the favor back -- the same way he/she did for me
Guess that's the only reason I have why I 'kept stirring the pot'
