I always admire the man for his desire to be in touch with his readers/fans. Not sure about the whole 'advice' thing, but it's certainly a good chance, and a reward, for fans to be in contact with the man himself.

Tatsuwashi: Why would anyone want advice from a professional? No doubt he can offer far greater insight into things than simply calling someone a 'hack'.

onagagamo: He's far better than anything else Japan has to offer at present, and is clearly very highly ranked and respected around the world, hence speeches in Israel about peace, potential Nobel prize winner, etc.
