Collection of SharePoint StackExchange best questions and answers
Based on my rather decent experience as an expert on
SharePoint StackExchange, I've been noticing, that users' rating of answers
is not always accurate. Some very good, article-like answers, earn just a few
upvotes, meanwhile rather obvious and link-like answers occasionally hit the
jackpot in terms of their rating...

to find good questions and answers.
Therefore, here I'm trying to collect the most informative and edicative
threads from SharePoint StackExchange (not only mine), related to areas which I
