Is any one person obligated, no.
Is the list obligated, yes.
The basic purpose of the list is to share information. If someone
asks a question and those who know don't answer, then information
isn't being shared. I would be suprised if the same basic questions
didn't keep popping up. They do on every other list I have
I guess it depends on how you visualize the list as a
single "research project" where you cover each item in sequence and
never back over it or a "school" where a new class enrolls every year
and the same basics get covered year after year.
In the meanwhile the best I can hope for is the continued PUBLISHINGlarge I
will be grateful to receive whatever they happen to share.===========================
And that's exactly what all the "noob's" are thinking when they ask a
question. Evidently they will be disappointed.
