The "point" was I just wanted to know if it existed.
The reason is, a few days ago I followed a link (from one of tilly's posts) to the Selected Best Nodes and perused a few of them.
Today, I encountered a problem that I think one of the nodes I looked at there would answer. The problem is, I cannot remember what the node was called, nor it's author, and searching turned up too many hits for all the keywords I could think of.
So, I know I could find tilly's post with the link again, and that would give me the day and time. So then, *if* the list was being archived I could have gone to that days list and stood a much better chance of re-locating the post I was looking for.
As it is, I can't. No matter, I'll find it eventually.

Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
