Is it necessary to downvote newbies?
I don't ask this because I am newbie but I think we should appreciate new comers for their asking. We should not degrade them by making downvotes and so by improving out critic badge.
I know that new user must have to Foogle out first and then to ask over Stack Overflow, but if he/she doesn't found a specific answer though they have searched, then why to down vote them? I think all are learners over here!
