It sure does that, but often on a personal level rather than a professional
phrased differently, or analysed differently, support on a professional
level gets obscured by a far larger amount of personal-level support that
typically dominates. I have nothing against discussions covering personal
lives, but the relevance to others (the scope) tends to reach fewer people.
Newsgroups are not well-engineered to handle dialogues.
