hmm .. interesting. This makes sense. But I think the best way is
somewhere in the middle.
So obviously there should be no need to flame(within this context of
volunteer-novice situation), but to make the novice who is asking the
question aware that he needs to do some homework, perhaps only
mentioning this would be better while giving some hints to help him.
