I'm glad you like it.

On a meta point, I'd like to suggest that before people post to this  
list saying "this is broken" that you first do some research on the  
wiki and elsewhere. There's a good chance that if the problem you've  
run into is worth tackling, someone else has already at least started  
tackling it. Also, when you fail to find any work on a point, please  
still don't email the list saying "this is broken", try "I think this  
is broken, but that may just be because I couldn't find it on the  
wiki". :)

Once again, we already have space on the wiki for working on this:


Please document any sites which should be targets of advocacy there.  
And feel free to do any advocacy of previously documented targets.


PS - On another meta note, if you find that you're writing multi-page,  
informative emails to this list, you should probably be putting the  
information on the wiki instead.
