If your mind is in self-reflect mode, does that mean you talk to yourself
a lot? :)
echo-on just helps for debugging the config file though I believe the
Enhanced Reflector will spit out a line number of someone goes wrong.

Combing thru the doc file helps...The only problem I've seen people have
is distinguishing between one ID reflectors (ala: old Cornell style) or
multiple conference reflectors (ala: WP 2.0 style).

For one ID reflectors, use CONF-ID..For multiple conference IDs, use
CONF-DUPLEX-ID and all the CONF-* commands to set it per conference. That
fact isn't too clear in the doc file.

Also...always override the global parameters. I helped someone else out a
few months ago that couldn't get more than 20 people in a conference even
though he had CONF-MAX-PARTICIPANTS and CONF-MAX-SENDERS set to some
higher number. Turns out, the global MAX-PARTICIPANTS, etc. is set to 20
by default.
