Stack Overflow is an online resource available to the general public; questions asked here should be of use to people other than you and the person who answers your question.
When you post a question about Eclipse on Stack Overflow, you're not just talking to the Eclipse experts, nor is the act of asking questions solely about you and your particular problem. You are also talking to the broader Stack Overflow community, who must parse your question and decide whether or not it is clear, answerable, and of use to other people who might find the question via Google.
Stack Overflow isn't the red phone to the Kremlin, in other words (the Kremlin being a room full of Eclipse experts, in this case). That would be the Eclipse Chat Room, if such a room existed.
For these and other reasons, we still require a minimum level of skill and dexterity from people when they ask questions, regardless of our technical expertise (or lack thereof) in any given area.
