I just want to give a yes vote for these ;-). I have myself felt the
need for something like this for some time now. I am already on one of
the main LC mailing list.

Yes, indeed. It would help if newbies could be pointed to a website.

Yes, yes, especially after the experiences that some of us must have had

Oh yes, my strange name notwithstanding, I am indeed a woman ;-)
Thanks svaksha, for taking the effort to put out these suggestions.
