Mailing lists of big and successful open source projects are these days flooded with clueless requests from newbies which obviously have not spent a second getting acquainted with the tool or with the basics of the underlying protocols. I'm going to publish some of the "best" of these messages in irregular intervals her, tagges with "best-of-mailing-list".

All articles tagged appropriately can be seen as blog entries. There is also an RSS feed.

I hope, that I won't be on that list for my question about mailman and exim4 configuration. But I don't have time to learn exim4 and mailserver configuration. I only want to have a mailing list for my project on my own server and not on sourceforge. What should be so difficult about that?
