Actually, there's a dark side to listening to their "advice."
Let's say it turns out to be something you actually can use and end up implementing it. (Or you end up implementing something similar. Or you had already thought of that and were in the process of rolling it out.) Then 2 years down the road you get caught in a "Hey, that was my idea- give me my share of the profits" lawsuit. :(
Maybe we need to create some boiler plate document that relinquishes the "adviser" of any future claims to revenue resulting from the advice. Then tell the person you'll listen to the advice after he signs the form.
