Advice about advice
Advice is offered, not given, you are NOT obligated to take it.


Most people are trying to help when they offer advice but
remember their opinion is based on their experience, not yours. It may be that their
bike is set up different to yours; maybe they are an ex-superbike rider. In this
modern age of interwebs there are people that purposely offer malicious advice
designed to muck you about, I not saying I have seen that in our lovely corner
of the net, but be careful out there. Whatever the case, any advice you choose
to take should be cross checked with another source wherever possible.


When asking for advice, try to give as much relevant info as
possible


If you are offering advice, try to keep it concise and easy
to follow, remember, the reason people ask for advice is because they don’t
know what to do. If you believe a previous post to be incorrect avoid being condescending,
or rude. For sure explain why you disagree with the previous post and offer
your own advice but play nice.


On occasion the advice from two members may totally contradict
each other, this is where the crosschecking becomes vital, often it is just misinterpreted
or for different set ups, give and ask for details

RE: Advice about advice
Yep...always best to keep in mind that opinions are like arses - we all have them, they all are given to stinking at times, and some stink worse than others...oh, and for some reason our own never seem to stink as bad as everybody else's!

That's why I set my custom "title" to Opinionator - anybody who is alert should realize that means that I am given to expressing opinions and they should give them exactly the weight they deserve... LOL

Naked men? Where? Where?

Or as Americans say, "Where at"?
There is great need for a sarcasm font.
