Those are abuses of the forum. People ask HTML coding questions. Other
people answer them. It turns into a tech support area. Let's talk HTML
development and see if we can't win it back.

As far as math goes, it is certainly _appropriate_ here, but I wonder if it
isn't a broad and complex enough topic for its own mailing list. I suspect
that serious mathemticians would not hang around long after they read their
first "what is Javascript?" message.
