Without attempting or intending to belabor this tread, I would only note
with respect to the above that even, if such a list were established, some
wag would get on it and register the exact same complaints.

Maybe - just maybe - because lists like this gets a continual flow of
newbies - many of whom (a) do not know what took place previously, (b) who
do not know where to find or how to find archives, and (c) who are too lazy
to do any searching or research, too much in need of an immediate everday
recipe on how to solve their problem, or too self absorbed in their own
needs that they forget that what they are asking or saying is not new in the
instutional history or memory of the list.
