Heck, just as long as you start with this sentiment:

"Your divine fate/karmic balance/essential humanity depends upon your reading
this short list of questions and answers.  It undoubtedly answers the question
you are about to email.  Read this first.  If the question is found here, 
that email will be ignored."

"Heck, all your emails are answered by voulenteers.  There is no staff paid
to spend their time answering these questions.  So please let's entertain one
another and email interesting, new questions instead of these old ones."
