As a moderator, I already reported one of the member who already replied here above, as a troll, but so far no luck. It was just considered as a stupid. And nothing can be intend about stupidity. All what we can do is to ignore those posts instead of keeping replying to the offenders, but we all should do it.
I completely agree with you.
I would hope one day moderators would take appropriate action against worst offenders.

I'd suggest the best way to deal with it would be to starve him out. Refuse to reply in any way, shape, or form. What the Amish refer to as 'shunning'.
That there are some members here who are attempting to learn Oracle only through forums interaction without reading the documentation.
Formal training would be good. But the documentation should be starter. Self-study and practice are good but don't raise questions without even putting in the effort to lookup the documentation and/or thinking through the scenario you are in / testing.
