  • Question

  • Hi All,

    What should we typically do if someone replies to a post(question) and adds no value? I have seen several posts here on the forums where the replies are either not related to the question at all or add no value. Just wondering if there is something we can do.

    Thanks for your help.

    Simply IGNORE such replies !?

    Everyone's perception will be different. A post which might be helpful to me need not be helpful to you.

    There is no thumb rule to decide a post is helpful or not even though that's irrelevant.

    If at all you see some posts with abusive language, you have an option to mark that as an abusive post.

    All right, this is my perception on your post and I mean NO disrespect but I didn't see any helpful content in your post or question or suggestion. What do you suggest me to do in such scenario ?



    Thanks !

  • I forgot to add a point to my earlier post(my apologies), but I'll do it here 

    I have seen several posts here on the forums where the replies are either not related to the question at all or add no value but those posts have been marked as "answered"

    Hopefully, this will add some value to the question I asked.
