Technically true, however, frequently and functionally misleading.
There have been few libraries I have used recently where I didn't have
to call this list for help. While I have always received a degree of
help which has been useful to me, I routinely see other threads where
a programmer with a question doesn't seem to connect with the
respondents (the latest threads about bjam & python being good examples).
