Your hypothetical person is flawed in the sense that they're supposedly knowledgeable enough to know better but are still giving divisive recommendations. If you know enough about genre and if you know enough about what the anime community thinks of a given work to know that there's no consensus there's really no excuse.

Anyway, more than asking the wrong way I think he's asking the wrong people. Don't limit yourself to one spot, ask in multiple places to cast the widest net. Even BW seemed to have situations where people CBF to actually read before recommending him stuff.
