I'm sure this is a problem in other tags, but it seems to come up relatively often in 4e and I feel like most of the time we handle it well. However, today was an exception.
Was asked and while there are some questions there that merit advice, but largely the question is seeking to understand the rules of the game.
Shortly after this question was posted, this answer came through. The poster of the answer doesn't seem to have played 4e, at all. Their answer contains the basic advice "stop worrying about the rules and do whatever seems right" which might be good advice in some systems, but is terrible advice for 4e. Specifically this paragraph was troubling:
A mount is a creature. Treat it like it. An enemy could attack it or attack the rider. Don´t really pay attention to the 4E RAW about it - prefer using commom sense instead. It will make a game more imagininative and fun over time, and you will get away from that "MMO-with-dice" that 4E feels like. If you like that feel, well, that´s ok, however. [sic]
This is nothing more than system bashing, and shows a clear lack of both expertise in the system and respect for the person asking the question. At best this is an unhelpful answer, at worse it's a clear non-answer.
However, when this was pointed out in the comments, and (assumably) in a flag, the moderator response was:
4e does not equal RAW, there are plenty of people with a variety of play style preferences that pick it up as their first rpg just because it's on the bookstore shelf. This answer is valid since the question does not say "raw rules only, no advice." Therefore this answer is not challenging the frame of the question. No more comment fighting about it please.
Do we really want inexpert answers being validated in this way? This question was asking for some advice, yes, but mostly it's a rules question. And unless you're going to provide both the rules, and the advice, it's not a complete answer. Add blatant system bashing to it and it should be deleted on sight. Leaving answers like this make this community poisonous to all play styles.
