...with a lulu of a post about ISBN numbers and self-publishing on LuLu. David points out the load of info on the LuLu forums. In looking at all the information there, I was reminded that forums were a great source of user generated content before anyone gave a shit about user generated content.

Except that the point with forums has always been helping and/or sharing (when not trolling and/or flaming). So what do you call the kind of content that is essentially one user helping others? user generated help? self-support? co-dependence? enabling? Is it a bad thing or a good thing? I think I need a meeting.
