TMF MI is generally a very polite board. Just look a the Yahoo boards for examples of "Conduct Unbecoming".

Newbies visit the MI board for several reasons: the high message count, reference in the current Workshop Article, or a mention in one of the TMF email newsletters (my first exposure).

It is not obvious to a new visitor, that MI is for advanced discussion, or that FW is more appropriate. Sure, this is in the FAQ, but the FAQ is a long post, and isn't always read first.

Is it possible to modify the board title (yes, that's been discussed before), or message heading to redirect newbies?
