Right about now, is anyone else thinking that it might be a good idea
to establish "comp.lang.lisp.newuser", where a brief FAQ (containing
mostly pointers to web stuff) would be posted *frequently* (maybe even
once a day!)?!?

Nah, that would just clutter up "comp.lang.lisp" with postings that
quote the newbies' entire articles and add one line saying:

	See "comp.lang.lisp.newuser".

followed by a dozen more replies saying "That wasn't very helpful!"
