As everyone knows, we get a huge number of duplicate questions saying "My transaction is unconfirmed, what do I do?" I've sometimes noticed users responding with comments saying "accelerated". Example.
What are these commenters actually doing? To what extent does it help the asker get their transaction confirmed?
Is this is a desirable use of the site? If the "acceleration" actually does anything, it seems to me that it encourages people to clutter the site with duplicate questions, whereas what we really want is for them to find our canonical question, and not need to ask in the first place. In other words, I think the purpose of the site is to provide people with information, not with services.
If this is not desirable, what should we do to discourage it?
