However the majority are genuine newbie's looking for a bit of guidance. Sometimes we forget that we were all newbies once and we have to start somewhere.
In my view the reason that IM evolves and develops is because of the constant influx of newbies trying out new ideas and testing their own theories of what works which then become trends in their own right.
Granted, some people should steer well clear of IM but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't try in the first instance.
So perhaps we should all have a little more patience (myself included) when we see questions like "How can I generate traffic to my site"
Thanks to all the newbies out there who keep challenging and shaping the why IM works.......
