Ah, so the hundreds of people who regularly contribute here are all a
figment of my imagination?

One point that hasn't been mentioned: Fedora is an *experimental*
distro. The people using are are assumed to know that and to be up to
communicating about problems and solutions. If you only want to post a
single question and don't monitor the list on a regular basis, I have to
ask if you should really be using Fedora at all. I regard that as
sufficient justification for the must-subscribe policy.
