This is OT, but just to show you I have nothing against you, I'd like to
say that I do appreciate constructive posts (as that one), and the only
thing I did dislike was you being so "aggresive" some times. But by your
name it seems English is not your native language (nothing wrong about
that, it's not mine either :-) so perhaps it's all a linguistic
misunderstanding.

BTW, the list is available in the Wiki too
http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?ThingsNewcomersShouldKnow
you might edit it if you like.

[Bill, have you seen the Wiki or not? It's gonna save you time, really :-)]

Regards,
