I disagree about the front page containing too many items
presently. People wading through the web to PM can certainly
handle a long page at the gate.
Some think of the front page as, uh, the front page.
Others think of the Monastery Gates as the, uh, gates
to the monastery. These are two different functions.
A front page should change fairly often, the welcome
mat at the front door has a longer usable life.
Residents never pay much heed to their welcome
mat, but to clean it now and then.
If PM is not first a community which attracts and
keeps the exalted, the mundane will find no
blessings here. So I'm willing to oblige those who
treat it like a front page.
