Relevant topic, of course. Undeniably, there is the tendency for newcomers to make more mistakes in picking the right section for their queries, etc.
But it occurs to me that the converse may also be true. That the monks who have stayed too long inbetween four walls of the Monastery, figuratively speaking, are prone to, um, go bananas from time to time. Allergic reactions, crusader banners, hallucinatory delusions (a ghost of Jefferson stalking you). I believe, tilting at windmills is the generic phrase. I suggest this latter phenomenon may better explain the upsurge of considerations.
So I was thinking, perhaps there ought to be a "Sanitarium" section with a more light-hearted, non-technical content, along with some notes about the Monastery etiquette.
- "We celebrate TIMTOWTDI. There is no One True Editor."
- "Don't solicit votes or considerations."
- "Count to ten."
- "Practice what you preach: apply to self the standards you would demand of others."
- "Preferably, let others consider nodes in your threads."
- "When was the last time you took a vacation?"
But maybe we just need more... fortune cookies?
