You guys have no sympathy for goodness sake! You want to dis the
gateway b/c of your unsubstantiated opinion that there is a difference
in the quality of posts from newsgroup vs. the mailing list? I’ve
looked at the newsgroup posts you are not seeing, and they are not
only few in number, they don’t seem particularly noob either. So I
think maybe you guys are over shooting the mark here, and really are
simply frustrated that you feel overwhelmed by the quantity of posts
(as is evidenced by the a desire to filter the posts).
Please consider that one of the long standing triumphs of this list
and the Ruby community is that it has never been a “RTFM” kind of
place. And I would prefer it say that way --I don’t mind answering a
nuby question now and then.
