Holy cow, I wrote a book!
When you ask a question,
you should also mention what steps you've already taken when
attempting to solve it on your own.
First of all, it saves the people who decide to help you
with your problem from exploring lines of investigation
which you've already tried
(and which you know don't work).
"I tried setting the timeout to 60 seconds before issuing
but it still failed with
the error ERROR_NETWORK_UNREACHABLE."
Second, it cuts down on noise on the discussion list.
— Try setting the timeout to a higher value.
"I already tried that; it didn't work."
Third, it demonstrates that you
cared enough about the problem to
try to solve it yourself.
It's surprising how many questions come in from people who
didn't even make the slightest effort to solve their problem on their own.
"When I issue the command show active,
it shows the active tags.
How do I filter it to show only active tags that I created?"
— This is explained in the online help: show active -?.
If the online help is unclear, please describe what you're having
trouble with and we'll work to improve the documentation.
"Thanks! The explanation in the help is just fine."
(Yes, that was an actual response.)
