Yes, yes you are.
Keep in mind, as much as they might sound like it, very few of these users were actually born yesterday. Many of them have even reached their early 'teens. They do have some knowledge of how to communicate, but have become soft and lazy thanks to our permissive culture and loud Rock'n'Roll music. Heck, they're probably listening to that "Elvis" and smoking fat "doobies" while typing, hence the many missing characters.
By slappin' them around a bit, you're showing them that the lazy slacker hippie lifestyle doesn't fly in the real world, and helping them on their way to adulthood. They should thank you...
Once you get sufficient reputation, if a question is inappropriate you can just vote to close it. And if it's just badly worded, you can edit in some better words. Thus saving the back of your hand for those that won't learn any other way.
Or, as the jjnguy suggests, "hope that the question will improve, and the user will learn to ask better questions"
