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.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

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

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
