I guess it depends on what you are looking for. If you expect the acronym,
you may not see it often, but also look at how many times people refer
questioners to sections of the manual without detailing full answers.
Personally, I like to do that because if someone hasn't even bothered to
look at the help but just ask the question, then it seems an imposition to
expect a full answer. It comes back to the hoary old statement about
fishing, which ends "give him a rod and he'll eat for life".
Besides, I refer to it as the Factual Material!!!

I don't know, I think more importantly quality posts, with ready-made
test data and well phrased questions tend to get (suprise..)
This one is well known, I guess:
though maybe it applies more to forums less friendly than this...
Btw, I haven't seen a "RTFM" reply on SAS-L yet? :=)
