So this forum is only for Pharo newcomers who have questions? Seems rather
limiting.

When I join other language forums, I look for information about the language
I'm investigating as a newcomer. This can include the language's
capabilities, limitations, real-world usage, new tools, philosophical basis,
and so on. General information across a broad spectrum of topics.

And, yes, even trivia and factoids that I might find interesting. I
appreciate that you don't find this interesting, but other forum visitors
may.

If the Pharo users forum wants to, it could do something as draconian as
StackOverflow does: put a tight leash on submitted questions and boot out
everybody who doesn't comply. This is one reason I don't go to StackOverflow
very often — they aren't welcoming to people who just want to learn general
things.

I've told my readers that the Pharo users forum is welcoming. Please don't
make a liar out of me.
