I honestly don't see much difference between this and when students 
would flood a list with questions when their final projects where due.  
Nor was there much difference between this and the late spring/summer 
flood of new graduates trying to figure out what their doing.

It is slightly worse in that due to poor english skills, you have a much 
lower percentage of noobs who actually will graduate to supplying 
advice.  OTOH, maybe they go off and do so on their own lists.
