As for a answer to your precise question, I don't think this is a better
place to hang out than anywhere else (especially after the two emails that
started off the flurry of the last 24 hours).

However I am subscribed here because I used to live in Nottingham and I
knew personnaly some of the contributers to the list who I have respect
for their knowledge of Linux.  It's a fairly low traffic list (at least
