So, for me anyway, the first question is: is this question common enough to be useful beyond this one case?
The reason being if this site becomes as much of a success as we hope it will do, we will attract a decent number of lazy/noob questions, and however we respond to those there will be an overhead in dealing with these. As such I'd argue that it would make sense for us to have a high quality answer here that people will either reach organically or that we can link people to.
Beyond those qns that are likely or have general use to newbie EE devs, (eg slight edge cases that are addressed in the docs/have high quality relevant search results already) I think it depends on the questioner.
If from the tone/content of the question it seems like the OP is very new to EE, I'm inclined to answer sympathetically. Recent events aside, we are, and should be, ambassadors for our community here - I found the EE community incredibly welcoming and supportive when starting out, and I think that's a strength. If however, a poster seems more experienced but engages in repeated "lazy" questions I'd give them rather shorter shrift.
