We have learned one thing (at least hopefully):
Don't ask questions like "What is XYZ?".
Instead, ask questions like "I googled XYZ and found <stuff>, but I
am still confused about <other stuff>".
Everyone on the list will then respect the fact that you put in at
least a little effort trying to help yourself before expecting others
to take their time.
