Can touching a motherboard with oily hands damage anything?
My hands were a little oily and there was a piece of lint on the motherboard so I touched it to get it off and there was a little oil from my finger left behind. Will this go away over time and will this damage anything? My computer was powered off and was unplugged from the wall

no, but it's sensitive to the static electricity you build up. discharge yourself before handling electronics. and wipe off that oil.

Take a clean cloth and put a little alcohol on it and clean it off. It s okay to do and alcohol will not harm the Mobo. Just give it a few moments to evaporate and dry off before you fire it up.

Yes, it's possible.
