Well, of course you can use a wrench to hammer a nail, but is it the right tool?

The point is that neither the forum nor the mailing list are there for
your ease. They are there for all the members.

If you just pop in when you need an answer you are not "giving back"
to the community. You are just using it as a "free support".

When your first post to a forum or mailing list is a question, I think
it's bad netiquette.
