I choose to use this question as an example arguing for assistance. We're a relatively small community and I think we may be at risk of driving off people who will be productive users by being too quick and terse in our "not a question" "no citation" style comments. Sure if someone has 500+ rep, that's cool. But, for newer users, would it not be more to our benefit to create a tradition of helping them get started... especially with questions?
After all, the premise is experts answering questions posed by less-than-experts. If we presume that someone is not an expert skeptic, we should presume that they might not know the correct way to phrase a skeptics question.
Yeah, it's a gradient, and some questions are a lost cause. But some questions are from someone trying to express a skeptical viewpoint and just using poor phrasing.
