Don't get me wrong Dave - people are welcome to talk about SM wherever they choose. After all, there's no such thing as too much publicity.
However, with SM being so new and all, there's a LOT of questions being asked, and most of them are the same story over and over again. The answers are already posted on the website and in our existing (over a year and a half old now) Egroups list archive. And failing that, a question posted to the Official Mailing List will get the definitive answer.
We monitor and post to a LOT of forums... it's becoming way too much work to monitor them all. So while it's great that you broke SM into its own forum here, the best source of info, especially for newbies, is the official website and mailing list.
