Scott, 

Sorry, if you miss interpreted my question about using the official help site as biting your head off. 
If was not my intent when I asked the question, I just wanted to know why folks where against using the site.

I gather that there is some type of technical issue that is preventing folks from posting information to this site????
Or is it, that they just do not like the way the information is presented?

If everyone helped add info to the ohnosec.org/drupal/ site, it would soon be MORE desired site and in one place.

Yes, I understand that one can Google and find just about anything.
But the point that I was trying to make is, that for a beginner to much information on several websites can be confusing. 

Again, I am not trying to get on anyone's case or bite anyone's head off. 
Just thought it would be easier for the new folks to have an official place to go to get answers to questions.
