Now tell me how a novice is supposed to know to believe him over me?

If you preface your post, explain that you're not an expert, that you're just guessing -- makes it easier to judge whom to believe

    Unfortunally, 99% of the bullshit answers given here on Perlmonks (and believe, tons of answers here are just bullshit), don't have such a disclaimer.

      Then make the effort and call them on it. It won't change unless someone does.

      But distinguish carefully between theoretically incorrect and practically incorrect.

      Consider your contributions on the recent thread concerning picking random numbers.

        Then make the effort and call them on it.
        That's my point. Any time someone spend "calling" bullshit cannot be spend answering questions. So, it's in everyones interest to not answer if you aren't sure about the answer. (Well, except for the ego and XP of the person who thinks "I rather post bullshit than keep quiet").
