Well...that's part of what the FAQ is for, because everyone asks certain
questions.  Putting the answers all in one place keeps the rest of us from
having to listen to them over and over again.

Beyond that...if you, say, want to know how to integrate chitlin grubs into
a subtropical savannah, you can ask a more specific question and perhaps a
human *can* better direct you to the info you need.  Otherwise, having no
knowledge of your specific needs, all we can really do is point someone at
the resource list and let them figure out what works for their specific
situation.  Someone living in Ohio, say, probably has very little use for a
site focused on tropical rainforests.  It's a big world, after all. :)

Just another data point,
