there are people that goes directly at the farm to look for the milk, and
the others that go at the mall. I prefer the first one, the milk is always

ie why do you think it is more difficult to people to ask and answer to the
questions on the project website than on a generic website where you are
not sure to find the right answer?

For me it is just like posting an issue. And we could even share the

validate the quality of the content. People will make sure to find the
right persons.
