I've read that before. I makes sense up to a point, but there are caveats. OK, I can accept that if someone's work is complete rubbish, you should wait until they (accidentally?) produce something with one redeeming feature before you offer any advice. I'm not sure if that helps the aspiring photographer much, but that's not my problem (as they say). Avoiding flak is of concern to me. So, I do always follow this one. Bad photographer = no help from me.
The big caveat is the unspoken assumtion that everyone takes photos (and I mean that, rather than makes images) for the same reason. We don't; and we don't always have the same reason each time we use a camera.

. Reason: I gave 2 examples and then removed them as making for a too long post.
