I believe the answer is yes. Here's why.
1.The more information that we all have as users, the more helpful we can
be to each other. If one of the knowledgeable people who commonly answers
possibly can't answer for whatever reason, someone else may be able to
pitch in and take the load off.
2. It gives a reference point to everyone that the question is being
answered, and so it builds confidence in me, that if I have a question, I
know this team has my back. And I have had several responses to my
questions. I very much appreciated that people here are willing to openly
share.

Just my 2 cents.

Good day, sir.
