Being a newbie is ok, we all started from that point. But there is a difference between a generic open question like "what is best camera, can advice?" and a question where it is obvious that the person has already used his own mind (and books, Google, friends, tests ...) to find answers and wishes to discuss findings. The latter one will get lots of constructive comments.
