Do you have an understanding of whats involved, or are you just telling
me its easy? (if its easy, I'm not against someone doing it ...)

Perhaps I dont. Heres what I understand you to be saying:
- you had trouble with some words on the website
- gns.o isnt educational enough
- "someone" should make any word that might be hard to understand into
a link to some explanatory text (link == not to hard, pop up box stuff
== harder).
- you've had trouble using gNewSense
- perhaps a few other points that haven't sprung to mind.

Maybe. Maybe I'm also the one who gets told lots of things that should
happen, and very few offers of help.

Yes, its a general discussion list. Anything happened here that makes
you think its not?

In Evolution pressing Ctrl+L uses 'reply to list', so you needn't
'reply all'. AFAIK this is an undocumented or poorly documented
feature. Thought it might be handy in your future list using :)
