Splitting the list would deffinatly be a bad idea, like has been said, there
will be noone eto ansewer the newbie questions, what are the chances that
someone is going to monitor both lists?  Coupled with the fact that, how do
you plan to keep the newbies off the "advanced" list?
Seems to me just a more of a pain.
It's a big world, and there's prolly some ungodly amount of people on
thismailing list with new people all the time, so naturally questions will
get repeated.  If the lists splits up I most likely won't bother with either.

What someone should do is archive the mailing list messages my month, and
have them available to get via majordomo.....
