learning to program, hoping to be of use.

Here is what I suggest(keeping in mind my vast ignorance):
Let's forgive and forget whatever Carol has said. However would it be a
good thing to elect a moderator to guide and if need be enforce etiquette?
Open source developers have some how found the time, on this brutal
planet, to write such great software with little or no compensation.
This should really be the 1st wonder of the world.
Motivation and moral are likely a big part of this-Patrick
