Because often something done a certain way for years needs a second look. Nothing wrong with suggesting what you think is a better way, and then having folks with experience tell you why it may not work... AS LONG AS that reason is NOT because we've done it that way for years without any issues. WHY? Because no one would suggest doing something different if there wasn't an issue. Might be that their issue is minor or has been discussed before, but they still deserve the respect of real understanding of their question.
I've been on the other side with this site, though it seems the mods here are doing a better job respecting the new folks with all the suggestions they might have. Kudos to them for managing the site the way they have with all the growth.
