Re: [DML] A bad idea: was Repeated Questions Solution: DeLorean Tech Wiki?

Point taken about advice on an unrestricted wiki, but that 
is pretty much how the list runs today.  We just tend to 
have short memories and rewrite the articles all the time.
Even WebMD recommends you talk over any of their
advice with your doctor before trying to treat yourself.

We already have a technical repository on, 
with a good set of content.  What we have always needed
was a set of good, "qualified" authors who had the time, 
skill and inclination to provide content.  Reviewers?  We
got tons 'o those...
