Overmethylation and MTHFR?

If someone is an overmethylator, why would one have to avoid Folic Acid?  
Doesn't this mean that your methylation cycle has worked too well (in an unregulated fasion).  
Or is it that the fact that Folic Acid can't be used to absorb other B vitamins such as niacin which
regulates the methylation process?

Can anyone answer this?
