we've had to fix so many things that people idly sprayed WD-40 into without thinking about what it really does.
Don't DO THAT.
you're probably not looking for WD-40 when you use it.
WD-40 removes lubricant that is already there, cutting it with a lighter petroleum compound.
use the right stuff for the job, we're not going to explain what these are because there are 10,000,000 different things for everything here and it would take days to explain them all.
[hint: it's probably not WD-40]
