See Adam this is EXACTLY the type of shit I'm talking about. Here someone
wait's for a chance to de-lurk and offer up something and you jump their
shit. I've been on the list since the start and I don't remember that URL.

* 1. This was posted over two years ago...

So for anyone to join the list or delurk they have to read two years of

* 2. ...which is when I added it to the FoRK FAQ...

And if maybe as I suggested to Rohit the FAQ url is included in every
message people will read it. However, I don't even know the URL for the
FAQ. Why don't you get for us all to remember it by?

This is total fucking bullshit Adam. Either FoRK get's closed like the
Voxers and it's just a few of us chewing the fat, or people are going to
post things that might have been covered. So close the list today, and from
this point forward we call can monitor every post. Then in two years if
someone dares' to post something that has been posted before you have room
to argue. Otherwise, you take it weigh two personal.
