I think the list you're looking for when you talk about only discussing
the base-system already exists (probably stable or arch). This is
freebsd questions- and the nature of the list according to the
all-knowing handbook IS for newbies, people who probably won't
understand the difference between third party and base.

I started here myself a long time ago, I wouldn't have the foggiest what
you'd be on about if I'd have come across your comments. I hardly do now
if it's any consolation, but thats more disbelief than lack of knowledge
or willingness to learn.

Another fact on this matter is the very point of why the reply-to of
this list is not to the list itself (a matter for argument which has
resurfaced on a regular basis): one does not have to be actually
subscribed to this list to post to it. So of course the really fresh and
uncertain ARE going to come here- this is THE first port of call. And
all of this is IN the handbook.
