I think in general the programming / it community has an issue regarding elitism and newcomer acceptance.

If I look back, RTFM was a really often reply on lots of forums regarding beginner questions.

The main thing to keep in mind is that they actually acknowledged it's an issue. I'm not really a contributor, but somehow I'm in the top 83% and I think that speaks for itself on how hard it is to bring new people in.
