  • Sometimes. If there's something that I think the person really needs. Not too often anymore.

  • Only if I'm checking facts or curious about the answer. People come to me for help with internet searches for some reason, so I guess I'm decent at digging through things online or something.

  • Usually only in the P&CE section. If it's something that I have an opinion about, I want to double-check my own opinion to make sure my facts are current and accurate. Other areas like relationships, JFF or parenting, I just speak from experiences, education and common sense (as I see it). After all most answers are considered "only opinion" and what ever source (or link) you use will be attacked or somehow discredited in some way by some one...

  • Rarely. If I think I know the answer, but am not positive that I'm correct, I'll do a quick google. I don't want to give someone bad information.

  • Not to find the answer itself, but to find a link to back up what I already know. Doing less in the debate sections leaves your answers in the "not credible" category. (example: someone says "I don't believe anyone has lost a job from Obamacare" while I know for a fact the town south of us has had multiple layoffs due to one of the taxes in it, so I look up the names of those companies on our local news website for the most recent report about it)
