How do you go about subtly helping individuals for whom the subject matter is clearly too advanced for them to really grasp what you are trying to convey?
- Patiently answer them until the question dies down?
- Politely post tutorials?
- Facepalm and abandon both hope and the question?
- Be honest and state their shortcomings? (I'm being facetious, not arrogant here!)
What has brought you the most success in getting through to newcomers when answering questions about your particular subject of expertise?
