"Show them this thread." Has anyone ever actually done this?

It seems to come up a lot in Ask questions where the poster is having some sort of problem communicating with someone- in fact it seems to come up almost every time. And I am genuinely wondering if anyone has ever actually taken that advice. Sometimes it seems like a good idea ('my world is spinning out of control and I don't know how to tell my husband') and sometimes... less so ('sweetie I asked a bunch of faceless strangers what to say to you about your erectile dysfunction, have a read!'). So yeah, has anyone done this? And more importantly, did it actually work?
