Not hardly. It doesn't even come close to it.

This is a decision you have to make for yourself. I personally think it to be 
a very unwise choice and one I would never consider, but then...

I would also like to point out that when you ask for help on questions@ and 
someone asks you a question, if you have the information it should be given, 
even if it was already posted on another list. I'm pretty sure that most of 
us don't follow all of the possible lists. So, even if I did follow the gnome 
list, if you said something is already posted there, that's too bad, I'm not 
about to do a lot of extra work trying to help you out. That's time I can put 
to better use working on my own equipment, or helping someone who will work 
with me to help them.
