Unless you reach or are at a point where you are tired of giving repair advice don't stop because just as it is with music, knowledge that has been and is gained through positive and negative experiences should be shared and you should always include a disclaimer so that you are covered should anyone want to pursue legal action. People are going to go ahead regardless without advice as humans are creatures of emotion not logic.
