We have a newbie channel and a set of people who are designated as newbie
helpers (who can talk on it).  So we control people's access to it and only
allow people who are actually helpful to use the channel.  This solves the
problem in most cases (or appears to anyway).  We also stop people chatting
on the channel so it is only used for actual questions and answers.

Good luck!
