answering newbie questions


If you are tired of answering the same question 1000 times, put it in
a FAQ.  What does FAQ stand for? If a question gets asked 1000 times,
it needs to be in the FAQ. Then when one of these questions comes
along, there are only two possibities: a) quote from the FAQ (nicely,
preferably), or b) revise the FAQ so that next time the question will
be answered.

There is a plant FAQ. With a bit of love and attention, I'm sure it
could evolve into something even better. I'm sure the FAQ maintainers
would welcome new blood and enthusiasm.
