Discussion on: How you shouldn't use StackOverflow ?

Great post Saeed!

I would like to add that every SO answer that solves the problem, does it under a number of constraints.
That's not always the case, but people should also bear in mind that one solution doesn't fit all scenarios.

The answer might work best for the one who originally asked the question, but that might not be something your application needs.

Investing knowledge gained from multiple resources (blog posts, tutorials etc) and then coming up with a tailored solution is IMO the best way to go about using StackOverflow.

Thanks for appreciation.

Yeah exactly that's the message which I am trying to convey through this post.
