The fact is, if one wants a one-stop shop for questions with some assurances of getting a high-quality answer suited to one's level of experience, you're going to have to either pay for it ($$ and lots of it over time) or be the 3 percent out there who find that golden mentor to climb regularly with for a year or so.
Otherwise, most of us are left to books, the interweb, and friends. If one can't evaluate the merit of interweb advise, one likely can't evaluate the merit of a given reference book or of friends. Edit: ... or be able to just self-assess which is so critical to this activity.
And, realizing I'm being a bit fatalistic here, one's ability to evaluate interweb posts, reference books, or friends - or even to absorb what one pays for ($$) - is going to be obvious in terms of eventual injuries or eventual inactivity in this area.
