That's why I like wikis -- put the answer on a page with a reasonable name on a wiki that is indexed by Google:

  • Anybody who wants the answer can search Google.
  • People can "subscribe" to the recent changes page to see what has been posted lately, look at the page, and add their comments, corrections, or whatever, ideally in document mode.
  • If a page started or has evolved into thread mode, hopefully somebody takes it upon themselves to "refactor" the page to document mode.

There is more, but why not take a look at:

If you do have a comment on something somebody wrote, don't quote it but insert your comment in italics nearby (document mode) or at the bottom of the page (pseudo thread mode). There's a little more to learn, but I think it's worth it.

<I should revise that last paragraph to be more "appropriate" -- you can see the things I'd be trying to say if you read some of the links about wiki on AboutThesePages.>

Oh, and small typos (that are clearly typos) are sometimes fixed anonymously.

Oh, and by starting with a quote this page is sort of in thread mode -- at some point I should refactor to avoid any semblance of thread mode.
