No, that is the benefit of being on a list like this.  You learn from

Well, except that I find that it is a entertaining.  I get great tech
support from the people on the list, but at the same time, I am also
entertained at how incredibly arcane the jokes are.

This was not intended as a dig, but as a compliment.  What I meant was that
it is funny that people are having disagreements about arcane topics.  For
me, as a newbie, it is sometimes a bit like watching elephants wrestle: it's
a huge spectacle, and best observed from the sidelines.  No offense
intended.  My apologies if you were offended, because it was actually
intended as a compliment and a nod to your accomplishment with vi, because I
know how hard it is to use vi.
