Actually I am in teh same boat as you...

I am tired of seeing the same questions asked over and over again by people who
simply not reading the docuentation...

The documentation is actaually very good and very helpfull, once it sets in on
how Mike has written it. Which can be confusing... Then ask HOW to use the

Simply put questions that are ignored are most likely do to the fact they have
been asked 50 times before or they are simply in the documentation if you read

I am tired of getting 20 messages a day from people who want a free ride. If you
plan on installing Interchange and then selling your services to the public,
then the least you can do is READ THE DOCUMENTATION from start to finish!

Also it has become more and more anoying people saying "Hey this is a bug!" when
it is in fact a feature put there, that is they took to the time to READ THE
DOCUMENTATION they would know why it is happeneing...

Frankly quit wasting the lists bandwidth and time with questions that are
answered in the documentation...
