I just sent this to one of my web design lists, and I think it might
also be appropriate here.

The magic of the list is exactly like explaining "it" to your
grandmother. The process of clarification required to ask the
question of someone who isn't intimately involved is exactly what
solves the problem most of the time.

And that's the primary value of this (and other) email discussion
groups, I think. Not just in providing answers, although that's much
appreciated, but in helping me ask better questions---pointing out
the holes in my reasoning, the essential-but-absent information in my
description of the problem. If I can just get the *questions* right,
I have a fighting chance of coming up with the answers.
