This part is good.  Friendly and inviting - nothing scary here.

.. but I don't quite understand the rationale for this.  Why the
restrictions?  It seems strange to me to have a list named
"beginners", but disallow e.g. comp.sci. students or people learning
Haskell as a non-first language.

But perhaps I misunderstood the intended purpose?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
