> I agree, I think this is frustrating, a poster asks for help, and I offer what I would do in that situation. If I continue to offer help, it may be deemed as pressuring,
That's how I interpreted Dr. Bob's post on Social about pressuring regarding getting help. I think it's the repetition of a suggestion, perhaps within the same thread or regarding the same "event" that might be considered pressure. I also think that when someone says something along the lines of, "I've told you before to do X, but you won't do it." Or, "You don't listen to me." Or something along those lines. I've seen that type of response from frustrated folks who are trying to help elsewhere online. I can understand the frustration, but I also think it becomes less supportive at that point.
> yet in some cases the original post could be deemed as pressuring me for a response in the first place.
I suspect that will be a tricky call and will never be one that all involved parties agree on.
