Hmm, I know what you mean, but then there are those times everyone piles in an accuses the OP of trollery, which I find really upsetting.
You know, they start picking holes in their story, and saying this or that couldn't have happened. Well, maybe it could have happened, but the OP hasn't included every detail, or maybe the OP changed some details to protect their identity, and the new details don't quite ring true, because they're not. But the main situation is true.
I also hate the way some posters just pile in and bully the OP, asking why they did such a silly thing. Well, thats helpful, isn't it? It's like the person asking for directions to somewhere, and being told by the local yokel, "Well, I wouldn't start from here!"
