Yes, but we have the problem anyway. And it would be lot simpler to just say, "Take this to the beginners board."

As it is now, people are ambushed because they don't even know there's a place to ask beginner questions. I'm convinced that a lot of these posts are coming from people that would prefer to post in the appropriate place, but don't know where it is. They aren't a bunch of annoying Unix kids. They are people trying to figure out a better way to invest their hard-earned money. many of them are probably sweating and intimidated even as they hit "Submit Reply."
