Loads of folks, included myself, already did it. He seems to either don't 
understand or just overlook the issue.

If I were him and I would set up a wiki and give here the URL, then, all the 
list members interested in helping him to write a good doc, could move to the 
wiki and work on the document there, editing and disscusing the issues in the 
proper place. Just my opinion.
Open a new thread called "No" is not much helpful.

solution, and they don't read the whole list before send their emails.
