    By being

    Please could someone explain to me the grammatical construct " by being" with few examples? I tried to google but could not find proper explanation. Is "being" gerund here?

    You won't get answers here by being vague with your questions.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
