Sorry I couldnt respond to this while the earlier discussion came up but 
  if we are starting a column, we should be expanding the scope of it a 
bit more. "Ask Shadowman" is useful because it doesnt limit the column 
to merely tech support questions. We can ask things like say " Why 
should I switch from Slackware to one of the Red Hat products" and still 
get an answer.

So in my opinion we are better off renaming the column as "Ask Fedora" 
or something like that and let the community ask whatever they want to. 
I was about to start my own blog series 
(http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/asa/archives/008505.html) or 108 
community "Ask Rahul" and get all the glory but I will sacrifice that 
now for the greater cause.
