Yes, the advice itself is more considerate and respectful than I would expect from that era, but the idiom you pointed out is pretty amusing.  Good band name - or at least album title.

A cliché is often a vivid depiction of an abstraction that relies upon analogy or exaggeration for effect, often drawn from everyday experience. Used sparingly, they may succeed, however, the use of a cliché in writing, speech, or argument is generally considered a mark of inexperience or a lack of originality.

It depends on content, delivery, gravity and frequency. If I tell you "Hey, you know you should open that door before you try to walk through it, don't you?" and it was the 20th time today I've said something equivalent, it may try your patience a little, no matter how well-meaning the advice-giver.

Callumnifying is permissible.  Calumny is verboten.

Probably a matter of degree.

Also, talking with someone on the forum can be a hybrid between a personal conversation and a conversation between strangers. For many regulars here, it is or very, very close to being a personal conversation because of the close relationships that have been forged over periods of time, but it is an open forum and there are many posters who, at least at the beginning, are closer to being strangers. Then there is the part where perhaps 2 posters are carrying on a one-on-one conversation on the forum and a third poster chimes in.  Perfectly ok, of course, because it is an open forum. However, asking one person for advice in non-virtual life generally is not an invitation for others to chime in. The point being, it does take a bit of getting used to the differences in how communications work on the forum. It is probably more akin to a party where others can and do walk up and enter into a conversation that heretofore had been one-on-one.  Sometimes it is smooth; sometimes a bit awkward.

The irony is, I could think of several people, off the top of my head, who have sent me unsolicited advice in a pm, some nice, some nasty, some good, some bad, some of which came from some of the very people who are posting right now. 

So call it irony or hypocrisy, but unsolicited advice is everywhere. At least I admit that I do it, and don't pretend that I am offended by it. I'm a mom, that's what moms do. And believe it or not, someone might actually give you advice worth listening to.
