As long as there is the Internet there will be fucking retards giving bad advice. I try and avoid Reddit my marketing guy was all about it for a while till he started getting headaches over the stupidity.
Reddit is a great site that I have been a part of for a long time now. There are subreddits for just about everything. Sure there are stupid people out there who give bad advice, but I have been on r/snowboarding for a long time and the community there is very kind and very willing to answer all questions.
