rather difficult, because beginner questions can easily spiral into
curiosity about quite theoretical stuff, with no clear point of
separation. And I'm not sure we want to avoid having that kind of
curiosity, but I suppose it might always intimidate some newbies: a
predicament I'm not sure we can solve by a mere technical measure of
splitting up lists.
when I was a newbie I was intimidated by the sheer volume of
Haskell-Cafe, never mind whether I could understand it or not :-) but
also the relatively few amount of beginner questions with beginner
answers when looking in the list archives, probably made me less sure
whether my questions would belong there.
