everyone has to start somewhere. It'd be tough to learn how to use an SLR without access to one - which means running into such issues, along with asking questions about how you can improve shots, are part of the learning process.

Quite, which is why I started with a prosumer/bridge to learn things like controlling DoF, different settings (and what they do), shutter speeds, framing, composition and technique before going 'full scale'.  It seems many are going in feet first with no idea what they're doing and then asking questions like 'what did I do wrong' which says it all doesn't it, so sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind as how else will anyone learn?  It's down to the shooter to take control.  Some are just better off with a P&S.  That said, yes, it's a learning curve, but better to learn and grow with experience gained.
