That's a pretty rare attitude, unfortunately.  The interesting thing is that
when I get a question from Suhaib, I know it's an appropriate question that
probably deserves my consideration because he's done due diligence.

If only everyone was so diligent.

I do agree that this issue should be in the FAQ, if it isn't already.  And,
apologies for not checking myself to find out!  :-)

Anyway, you guys know that you're doing a great job.  I'm amazed at your
progress and glad to have my name associated with it in some minor way,
even if I'm just "the moderator".
