This is the way it should be (IMHO). Those of us who have been on the list
for a while don't need answers to the newbie questions, especially the tons
of mail regarding the QuickCam! Perhaps it's time to adopt the methodology
of the Sun Manager's list: a FAQ is posted from time-to-time, and the
individual that posts a question is responsible to post summaries, which may
get included in the FAQ if interest warrants. Just a thought.
