in reply to Newbies, trying to help, and where to draw the line?

As the person who probably more than most "dampened your enthusiasm" this afternoon, I say please keep posting.

Yes, your solutions weren't perfect. But they were common mistakes and having your solutions there gave me the perfect opportunity to explain why they were sub-optimal.

And anyway - if you hadn't posted them, someone else would have. What annoys me is the other people who went ahead and posted similar solutions to yours even after I'd explained what was wrong with that approach.
