    I think that idea of seeking equal relationships with others is a good one, substitute. Perhaps that would be where the majority of people feel comfortable in sharing knowledge. There is a deal of sensitivity about oneupmanship in our society.

    Yeah. I'm pig sick of being accused of it when it was the furthest thing from my mind. Yeah I do it, but when I do it I know I'm doing it and it's with a smile and tongue in cheek, I'm not being an asshole - making fun of myself more like, when I do it. Really hate it when I get accused of it when I'm just trying to be useful.

    The profitable parts. Other people's ignorance is how I make a living.

    Who does knowledge belong to that we should decide who gets it and who doesn't?

    Is knowledge personal?

    If you express your knowledge have you somehow shown someone your soul? Like a tracking device of where you have been or where you are going?

    Why hide knowledge?

    How did you gain yours?

    My generousity with knowledge creates a level of output that apparently exceeds demand.

    If someone asks for my help in explaining something, I'll very much oblige in most cases--because if you can teach it, you also better understand it yourself.

    I'll share knowledge willingly with anyone who actually wants to listen, learn or take-on-board a new perspective than do something with it.

    I will not waste my time trying to help or teach those who are not interested in helping themselves.

    I don't learn much when my mouth is open and enough people take "being generous with knowledge" as being a 'know-it-all' to quell wanting to share.

    I find it interesting that most of the responses classified the sharing of knowledge as "helping" someone.
