Default Beginner Starting Deadlift Weight

I was reading a discussion about starting deadlift weight. Someone asked a beginner why he was using 185 and rushing into heavy weight with the deadlift.

I have no perspective on this issue, as I started deadlifting after years of heavy squats. What is a normal starting range weight for a beginners? 135 to 185? I see beginners squatting in that range, so I figured 185 was normal.

I'm talking average young beginner with very little lifting experience.
