Sorry, there is one thing I really don't like: Giving out advice without
telling why. Because it is really useless for the guy who got that
advice. Why should he follow down that path? Why was he given that
advice? Is there really a reason to put some research time into that
advice?

Yes. Opinions. Opinions are good, but should be backed up - and not only
when you're queried why you have that opinion.
