Shawn, that was a really good guideline on how we ought to behave on the 
mailing list.

One thing that I would like the challenge the membership, if you have 
been helped and you have attained a level of comfort on a topic -- 
consider documenting what you know and the process, either in a blog or 
success stories.  CLUG is community based and will only grow if we all 
try to give back a little to the community.

On more than one occasion I have heard the comment that certain experts 
don't hang around the group any more and for good reason.  It is not 
their job to help us solve our problem -- there are a number of really 
knowledgeable people that are quite willing to share that knowledge, but 
they will get tired of answering the same questions over and over 
again.  As an organization, we need to learn what they have to offer and 
help leave a legacy.  We are not trying to make them redundant, but 
rather free them to further challenges.  The learners today need to step 
up and become the teachers of tomorrow -- only in this way will we grow 
our knowledge faster and have retention of our sage masters.

The challenge to the CLUG membership, what legacy are you going to leave?
