Absolutely! More than once I have learned things, or practiced things that were a little shaky, from 'newbie' questions. And often I have learned useful things and engaged in little collaborations with other people who I would never have even known except for MathGroup.

Often times the newbie questions are VERY instructive because the basics (there are so many of them) can be slippery. I've lost track of how many times a "simple" matter quickly led to something "advanced." But as you say, these terms are subjective. Two sides of the same coin. MathGroup is for everyone. Stephan Wolfram (if I recall his words correctly from October's Tech Conference) wanted this forum to be one of collaboration (in addition to its chief function of providing information). Bruce
