Amen, brother.  I would also add

All these are good suggestions.  It is, of course, a well documented
fact that users would rather take a beating than R The FM, FAQ, or
HOWTO.  I suspect that public humiliation for miscreants is the most

erection of posts, and the bringing out of matches.  Id est, flame wars.

Ah, well...
