Speaking as a recent (or current) newbie, I agree.  If you don't want to
see continual newbie questions on lists just change your habits in
answering them.  Most newbies when then see a URL or something will say
"Oh, I could have figured that out myself." and then begin to learn how to
do propper research (as I'm just starting to figure out.)
