i agree that the signal/noise ratio of many of the articles in the other sections leaves something to be desired, but as every such community, when you hang arounfd a while you learn to filter the useful stuff (and the knowledgeable people :) from the rest.

While the level of knowldge of course here in the CR list is way higher, it still could serve as a useful addition for some of us. (It allows direct attaching/linkinbg of pictures as well, what is maybe the most important advantage over a mailing list; but these have their merits, too, like offline reading capability...)

Like all new institiutions, it will evolve; i hope to something useful!

And it might serve to addict some of the younger folks who still think the latest taiwanese CFK-frame is the nicest thing to ride on earth :-D
