Yeah I see no problem with it either. It's nice getting answers to your questions from other people. Why not help others, when they are helping you?

It should be everyone helping everyone, not just trading advice for advice with one person who writes "I'll reply to yours" in his or her title.

If everyone had the time to look at and respond to all the trade/waiver posts, I'd agree. However, it seems like alot of guys throw out questions and don't bother helping anyone else. If I am going to spend time looking at someone elses trade, I have no problem wanting an opinion on mine in return. I just made one of these "I'll reply to yours" posts and have already recieved (and responded to) posts. This would not be the case with a normal post.

I don't see any problem with it at all. If somebody is willing to take the time to offer advice then I am more than happy to lend what advice I can to their question.

As far as everybody helping everybody. I agree, but have you seen the member count in the cafe recently? The "who to start/bench" forum can be extremely voluminous an hour or two before kickoff.

I don't mind it at all, I do it myself to help others, and I don't think that it should be ceased.


The only thing that I see sometimes is the people that have become vets around her (whether by tenure or by posts) can be condesending to or just plain ignore the new guys. Of course I am certainly not saying that about all cafe vets, some are extremely helpful. I just think that the new guys should be treated just the same as everybody else.

To be honest I dont want people replying to one of my posts just because I answerred one of theirs. If somebody really doesnt know the answer or is making an uneducated opinion just to repay me for answerring their posts, it does me no good at all. If anything it hurts me.
Why people want just shear quantity of answers as opposed to a few quality answers is beyond me. I think it might be a "look at me" situation to an extent were they get the attention they are after. JMHO

I have always been behind the idea of "take a penny, leave a penny" concept. If I come into the cafe and start a thread and ask for help, then I scan through the recent threads and answer a few as well. BUT I only post up a reply that I feel I am educated on or have an opinion on. There are many occasions were I just come in and respond to questions without asking a thing. We are all here to help each other, gain knowlege, get up to date info and maybe even make a friend or two. Thats what makes this site so great.
