When someone asks a question they're taking on ownership of it. Functionally it's their question. Consider an extreme case: someone's got dozens of genuinely bad questions. This isn't great for our site. If they say "asking for a friend" on each of them, that doesn't make them less bad.
However I think this particular question's fine and I've upvoted it. It's easy for you to find an unambiguous, clear answer in the books—but you are a D&D 5e expert at this point, having been around it for five years.
D&D is a difficult game for people to learn. When I started it was intimidating: it's made of several big books with passages tucked away in all sorts of places, and I usually didn't know where to find what I wanted to know (or that I even could find it in the books), and I didn't always know how to parse or understand the answers. I found that the more I understood D&D as a whole, the more I understood each part of it, meaning it took a long time before I could really start making sense out of any of it.
In this case it's the kind of question where a newbie wouldn't know how to locate the answer. They also probably wouldn't even know how to parse the passages being quoted correctly without some guidance for us. So it's a good kind of newbie question—it's only people who are already experts who would be expected to know how to find these answers already. (Heck, as a non-5e-expert myself, I'm sure I wouldn't be quite sure which way I'm supposed to interpret that damage rolls passage without Hellsaint explaining.)
