Perfectly valid point--certainly you don't need me to say that--stands on its own.
I just think/feel that not answering does not really help anyone either.
If they are "newbies" then we need to help them understand "better" not just ignore them.
NOT SAYING THAT IS WHAT YOUR SUGGESTING
I for one feel that there are very few "stupid" questions.
There are however questions that are better answered by actual training and experience.
Take the last question by Koji---guy seesm to think that there is some sort of super lethal fist postion--and wants to know if anyone teachs it.
We are not doing him a favor by ignoring it---we help him best by letting him know his information is incorrect/erronous and try to get him to get some real training--as opposed to just talking about it on-line.
In my opinion of course.
The "best" thing we can do is give people a realitic view of training and realistic expectations of martial arts.
Like I said--just my feeling on it---could easily be wrong, have been before.
