I'm certainly no advocate of that either. I have no doubt that many 
would participate in both groups. I guess I just think that it is more 
equitable to those who have made an investment in Rev, that a group of 
registered users may be more focused on things relevant to those with 
some fundamental level of experience. The Improve list frequently gets 
used that way now, but that seems like something of a subversion of its 
intent. I think there should be something between the improve list 
which is very private, and the Use list which is completely public and 
tries to serve every level of experience.

My suggestion was only based on having a lot of experience with busy 
lists relating to other (frankly more successful) IDEs. Those other 
tools generally have a "getting started" list, and then also a "users" 
list or even an "advanced users" list. This also tends to benefit the 
newcomers since they don't get intimidated to ask basic questions.

But Revolution and its community and culture is what it is. I'm 
certainly not going to change it.
