We regularly discuss this in the Italian community about the so called 
subject matter experts, reegularly coming to the conclusion that we 
surely make it clear that their opinions/original research is not 
welcome (it regularly gets deleted), the question is whether thay can 
find a way to contribute or they're unrecoverable.
