Unmoderated or not, something needs to be done about how many
times it's been necessary to say, "Read the faq". IMO, it is a
bit more than annoying seeing that said every week (or with
more/less frequency depending upon how much the "evil" pagan gods
want to punish us). In my mind, the mailing list exists for
discussion on CircleMUD (ideas, code, etc.) and for to offer
the occassional helping hand. Sadly, very little of the former
exists or is rather hidden amongst a mass of the latter. So, in
comes the faq and we contribute to it, hoping to eliminate at
least a small portion of the problems on the list by presenting
the most commonly (and annoyingly) asked and previously answered
questions. Guess what?! Not a single damn newbie to the list reads
the thing, then they ask the *EXACT* same questions and some
people that haven't read the faq or just don't feel like saying,
"Read the faq," provide answers and it evolves into a thread. Tell
me that we aren't wasting our time and space in our mail boxes by
people not looking at the existing resources, offer the proof.

I mean, do these people *really* think they are the first person
ever to want to add levels to their mud? To ever ask that question?
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, this was a valid question,
but after having been answered 1000s of times, I'd rather see it
retire after all that time. Like George Foreman...
