Nothing wrong with mediating out the work load to proper workers. Yes
the top tier should not be answering remedial questions however that
does not mean they should be removed from the sight of the greater
community. That also does not mean we should have class warfare.

Also stepping in tar-pits is avoidable if one exercises a bit of self-
restraint. And besides, one man's tar-pit is another's combustible
fuel oil for change.
