+1 , but you knew that I'd say that anyway.

A list dedicated to support would make a lot of sense, keeping it
factual and dedicated to the support topic and purpose.

Already seen that there is opposition to this idea, citing "too many
lists", but I don't see that. Volume of traffic across the lists
should be about the same for those that would want both. It would
allow those interested in actually helping people to focus on just
that, and those interested in advocacy or more generic talk to focus
on that.

It is a logical split.

IMHO, yes.
