Agreed !  Many replies were sent to Wrong lists.

Original poster & respondents abused stable@ & questions@
	Cross posting 2 lists un-necessarily, despite:
			"C.1.3 List Charters
			Rules of the road:
			No posting should be made to more than 2
			mailing lists, and only to 2 when a clear
			and obvious need ..."

		There was a desire, as always, but no need.  (so I
		removed cc: stable@ on this post, to avoid this
		post also breaking that rule, (on the basis that
		stable@ readership are more likely to already know
		about Not cross posting, & using the Right list,
		as questions@ started as a target list to point
		clueless new users to, from /etc/motd.  (It was
		expected as users grew experienced, they'd subscribe
		other lists themed to their interests.)))

	Noise was emitted to lists with wrong remits.
		advocacy at freebsd.org exists for promo. talk inc. re. wiki.

Please read list remits, & conform to them, & subscribe appropriate lists.
