As many already know, there is a GreaseMonkey script call AutoReviewComments to automatically insert comment text for common situations.

The stock comments are less than stellar in my opinion. What comments have you come up with?

    Maybe we should expand this list with some comments regarding to question closure. Ex: This question was closed because it was a shopping question. Shopping questions are considered not constructive because they have a very limited lifespan. Or something alike. Anyone who is up for it? – Bart De Vos Dec 23 '11 at 13:28

###Using an Answer for anything else
[SF] **is not a forum**. Please do not post Answers unless they *actually answer 
the Question*. This should be posted as a Comment to the Answer it is replying 
to. See the [FAQ] for more details. Thank you and welcome to [SF]!

###Shopping Question
Shopping Questions are Off-Topic on any of the [se] sites. See [Q&A is hard,

###Linux Network-troubleshooting

Could you connect to the server via ssh and give us the output for the following commands: iptables -L -v -n, chkconfig --list and netstat -an? Make sure you do this with the appropriate rights (sudo or su).

###Solved? Mark it!

It's nice to see your question was resolved/answered. Could you please mark it as such? If there is no appropriate answer below, make one yourself and accept it when you can.

###Asks for tutorial

What have you tried so far? Did you get an error? Provide us with errors and/or logs.

###Low Accept Rate

People are going to be wary of offering you answers as long as you have a low accept rate. That's because this community thrives on having good answers to good questions. If someone has given you a good answer in the past, but you did not mark it as such, the community is weakened. Now, if you truly did not get good answers to your previous questions, then edit your previous questions and say that you're still looking for a satisfactory answer.

###Other related problem

Welcome to $SITENAME$! This is an old question. If it's answers don't help you directly then you should ask a new NEW question by clicking the Ask Question button.
