I think it really depends on the forum. If I use one of my forums as an example (new to web development) there is a lot of activity from new members, and not a lot from more experienced members. I hate seeing a question to un-answered so if I can answer I will. I don't see how this can cause an ill effect. It provides the poster with a possible answer, and the door is always open for further member input.
