That's true, Steve. You're not the first one to have had those thoughts, and likely not the last.
But try to view it from the aspect of trying to keep this forum 100% focused on analog processes. It's most likely the only place around where 'technically' no digital talk is allowed. And that's kind of nice.
You could also make liaisons here on APUG, and use the Personal Message system to connect with them when you have questions that are not necessarily well suited for the forum. I've done this a lot when I have gotten too much conflicting information to questions, and that is a nice alternative, for sure.
