the two lists idea...

On deeper reflection...

I tend to believe that if there is an "advanced users" list, the basic list
will probably be abandoned by people who both have a clue and are willing
to share it, leaving everyone right back where we started.

Perhaps a better solution to reduce the traffic of clueless mail on the
mailing list is to very aggressively pursue writing more documentation for
Circle, so that the questions we frequently see asked here will be
answerable on the Web or in the circle distribution itself.

I will finish coding.doc as soon as my exams are done.  I have the archives
of the list over the past year and I can put them on the FTP site: maybe
someone can compile a list of the most frequently asked questions, and then
some people (including me) can work on writing answers to all of them in a
more all-encompassing FAQ than the one we already have.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure...
