I, for one, expect it to be both. One of the advantages of a mailing list
like this is the access to the collective knowledge, experience, and
cherished trivia of a group of professional colleagues that it provides.
Certainly, easily-researched facts should simply be looked up by the
questioner, but, in the case of more esoteric material, the research
resources of other list members can be a valuable benefit.
