Yeah same. One shouldn't require help in return if they're going to offer advice. It's a voluntary thing, and the well-informed and helpful citizens will try to offer helpful advice when possible.

I'm not a fan of the whole "I'll help you if you help me (first too, please!)" thing. If you know a thing or two, feel free to drop a line in my thread. If you don't know too much about the topic, then move along - I'm not going to force you to write something stupid that will not help anyone, and may give some learning fantasy players poor advice.

I guess that's what bothers me about it. When I see WHIR I think of the guys that post stuff like-

Yes do it

Help me now? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/helpmepleaz.html

without offering any real help or insight, only agreeing with everyone else who's already posted in hopes of getting replies of their own. I guess that's just the way that forum works though..

Or maybe it's just the word itself- "WHIR" reminds me of a helicopter for some reason. :-b

I find posting something abstract in leftovers which relates to the main issue about your team is a good way to improve your sqaud.

definitely agreed. Too often in Draft/Trade you get some one sentence answer like

I agree with you

(link to the guy's problem)

while most of the times you get more detailed answers here. ;-D

No it's Quick Man- nemesis and arch rival to Mega Man. With powers comparable to Mega Man's! 8-o
