    Is it customary for Experts to correct or even berate other experts for their answer to a question? It makes us all look bad and causes the askers (who are really our customers) to doubt the validity of our answers.

      Accepted Solution

      It's not customary but I have occasionally seen really bad advice posted that needed correcting.  It is not ok to just insult or say derogatory things, that is against the Terms of Service and can have consequences.
