<2. Beware of uninteneded consequences. For every newbie that gets a stern redirect, there are twenty lurkers wondering if they should ask
their questions. If they see beginner questions getting polite, complete, courteous answers here, they will figure that's what we do here. The
number seen here now is the barest tip of what could emerge>

And, of course, the other side of the coin, is that with stern redirects you will scare potentially good people away. These may be people who can down the road bring new ideas to the board. Is that what the board wants?
