I've been on this list for a few months (IIRC), but I don't post much. 
That's because I never provide Answers (being a newbie, and therefore 
not knowing them).

I'm on the list because I want to learn about PHP, and I've found it 
easier in the years I've been online to subscribe to mailing lists or 
(once upon a time) USENET newsgroups and just read the various solutions 
to peoples' problems.

"Where's all this going?", you impatiently ask, perhaps stamping your 
foot.  Well, pause for a second, gentle reader, for you are about to be 
shocked to your very core.

Well, maybe not.  Here goes anyway: I've learnt a lot about PHP simply 
from reading the answers provided by the more intelligent, knowledgeable 
and helpful members of this list.  Guess who's helped the most?

A young (?) man by the unusual name of "John Holmes".

Before you chew people out, Mr Kay, about being perpetually unhelpful, 
you may like to lurk on a list for a while and see if you're actually 
within a stones throw of the truth, or really just spouting off out of 
your own sense of hurt pride.
