Having been a nearly daily reader of comp.lang.c and comp.unix.programmer
for over a decade, I'm fairly confident that an easily accessible archive*
would prove fruitless at reducing duplicative questions or threads. It's in
the nature of the young (and the young at heart ;) to be impetuous--to ask
before thinking.

In any event, every once in awhile something novel is discussed, so it's not
enirely a waste of time.

I dislike on principle.
