Some of us are too new to irises to know how to answer some of the questions 
ask.  If it is a topic I know I can provide input then I'll respond.  Some 
people just don't have enough time to respond to all the mail that is received.

Then there is the problem of lurkers who are intimidated by all this fuss 
about whether their posts are going to just clutter up things.  What would 
encourage input from timid lurkers?
