I take a mixed approach. I normally interface with the group through
email and I use Google Mail for that, so I get the nice conversational
groupings and great interface. :-)

If you are prepared to accommodate folks that are really interested in
learning and using Erlang, then I'd be happy to sign up. I'd try to
keep the dumb questions to a minimum and would write down the words of
wisdom that I receive and post them on my website as reference
material (something I'm already doing for the Groovy scripting
language) for other new Erlangers moving from procedural languages to
concurrent functional programming nirvana. (Was that enough
grovelling? ;-)
