Responding to Simon Peyton-Jones'  reminder that this is a low-bandwidth list I
was obscure and commited a blunder.

This one and many other threads here are started undoubtedly by experts [sorry
guys:-)] and coffee brake should work for them, but on numerous occasions
threads here spawn beginner type questions. So, my thinking was that it is
perhaps against the tide trying to stop them.
Why not to make the list Haskell a first contact general practitioner? Then
creating e.g. "Announcements & Challenge" or "Announcements & ask guru" list
could take the best from "Haskell" but also would make it less front line and
thus more elitist, which should imply the manner by itself. You could always
cross-post but subscribe or answer to one.
