Hey All,

Just wanted to say that:

A. Big +1 to Tom that we do indeed want this to be a friendly place
especially for newcomers - this is a place where people shouldn't feel
hesitant about posting something, making a comment etc (if we start to have
an issue with off-topic or inappropriate stuff we could look into it).

B. Obviously if things got out of hand on "me-too" responses (or, god
forbid, auto-responders) we would take steps and so appreciate stef
highlighting the rfc. However, at present I think we are a way from that -
and I should add that Alioune has been a value contributor to the list and
community - please keep the comments coming Alioune!

Summary: at this point let's err on the side of encouraging contribution
and hence being a bit liberal - and if we start to have problems we can
revisit :-)
