Newb here, so you've probably already thought through all of this and can now feel free to disregard the rest. Only saw the question because I was checking on something else and this looked like something I wanted to see an answer on. Since there isn't one, I'll attempt to at least add some fodder for a good ole flame war. :-)
First off, this old post seems applicable, as @Coleman lays out his ideas:
How to not discourage people asking "wrong" questions?
Secondly, where else are we supposed to go? I've been messing around with Civi for a couple of years now, and I don't know where else to ask questions.
Thirdly, as someone who is still trying to migrate data, migration is a HUGE issue! It's not all due to CiviCRM by any stretch, as pointed out in one of the answers. However, this is the FIRST point of serious contact for any newbie. If I get slapped down, ignored, pushed off, or whatever, I'm probably going somewhere else.
I think the migration example is an important example to look at. From the perspective of a newbie asking a question, this is a "good" question targeting exactly what info I'm looking for. From a community perspective, I'm sure there are a number of things that could improve it. Yet, this may be a first timer. How frustrated would you be to find out two weeks later, after you spent a month importing stuff, that somebody had a template out there you hadn't been able to find?
The second example, which seems to have been deleted, looks more like somebody not willing to put much effort out. In looking around as a user, I would hope to see an answer that would point them towards the documentation wiki, with an offer to help further down the road. That would make me feel more comfortable that people are willing to at least help.
Feel free to downvote into obliteration, just my thoughts from a "user admin" perspective into the FOSS world.
