When you signed up for this mailing list the text on the webpage said:
 "MythTV-users -- a place for users to discuss hardware setups,
configuration, etc. Less on-topic than mythtv-dev (hopefully). Here is
the mailing list archive for MythTV-users."...  There were two links
in that sentence.  The second link takes you to gossamer threads....

Seacrh the mailing list for "Wiki" sometime to get an idea for why it's not.

"Bemoan" is different from "moan"
bemoan: deplore; regret strongly; 
groan: an utterance expressing pain or disapproval

The problem with "orientating" people is that people don't even bother
to try and help themeselves first before asking questions.  Every
single developer on this project trys to be helpful to those that have
demonstrated that they've tried to help themselves.
