More specifically, the link is the word, "here," in the sentence, "Go
here for a searchable mailing list archive."

Yeah, unfortunately, you have to read the words--instead of just looking
at the pretty colors--to get the information off the page. ;)
(Yes, this is partially in jest. I, myself, have failed to read all the
text on pages that provided the info for which I was searching--I'm sure
everyone has. It would be nice if things were easier for new users to
find, and I'm certain that will be the case when the new (still in
development) web site goes live, but there's only so much you can do and
the rest is up to the person seeking the information.
And, no, I don't mind when people bring up the same ideas over and over,
as long as they realize that an idea without code is just an idea.
IMHO, Kevin said it best with, "No one is denying the validity of the
reason but the end result is the same. No code, no feature. If you know
of another way to turn ideas into features without someone coding it, by
all means, let's hear it." --
