I'm worried about some of the avalanche questions that have popped up today. There have been some good general answers, but I'm nervous that someone might read an answer, and somehow feel prepared to go out into avalanche terrain with just that knowledge.
Specifically, I don't think anyone can learn how to probe and beacon search an avalanche without having taken a class or spent days practicing in the snow.
I'm sure there are other types of questions that will be similar such as "how do I set an anchor while rock climbing" <-- this is a day of class with a certified instructor, not a 1 page answer on a stack exchange site.
Edit: I guess I'm particularly worried by complete novices asking this type of question. If an experienced mountaineer is asking for ways to reduce weight by discarding safety gear, I would say that's a reasonable thing to do. If a novice is doing the same, it would be very unreasonable. Does that make sense?
