Amen, I think we need to do better as a community to educate new players about LiPo batteries, trigger contacts, voltages, etc. There are some good (and entertaining) videos on YouTube that try to dispel some of the myths.
BTW, I'm thinking those myths aren't helped by the fact that some forums on the net keep old FAQs and posts around that were written in the Jurassic age.. And that google indexes this stuff. The number of times a week that I google something airsoft related and end up on a thread or webpage written over half a decade ago is pretty often.
Old myths die hard
