Comment on "Getting Answers on Cocoa Mailing Lists"

Coming from PowerPlant I find that although my coding time has gone down, my troubleshooting time has gone up, due to the lack of source coupled with the poor documentation, give me source and I can work out most of my own problems.

I've found the opposite to be true. A lot less code, coupled with up-to-date documentation, which is more than can be said for Metrowerk's efforts, a good framework though it was.

Old-fashioned, my ass. Web-based fora are only much good for hit-and-run questions, and they're useless to search once they get bigger than my pinkie. High transaction costs in joining and leaving mailing lists keep them useful communities to far larger groups, for far longer, than forum sites.

Thanks for clearing that up. I'm pleased you value other people's opinions.
