I honestly don't see much difference between this and when students
would flood a list with questions when their final projects where due.
Nor was there much difference between this and the late spring/summer
flood of new graduates trying to figure out what their doing.
It is slightly worse in that due to poor english skills, you have a much
lower percentage of noobs who actually will graduate to supplying
advice. OTOH, maybe they go off and do so on their own lists.
