Sometimes. Google has occasionally found me an answer in a casual
off-hand remark in the middle of something that was otherwise OT for
its group. Sometimes a somewhat trollish rant can be terminated by a
terse reply suggesting some obscure two-letter command, which then gets
followed up by a couple of posts of thanks from other people for
telling them something they hadn't known about after X years in *nix.
But not often.
