    You could always put an initial form letter in the PM box explaining the issue. A lot of places do that kind of thing; it is no trouble, I think.

    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    I already have the forum send a welcome email to new users, but I'd never taken the time to edit it. I've updated it to include a link to the forum guidelines and a special note about the PM system. I also added the welcome PM as whiteflags suggested, with links to several resources as well as a second explanation of the PM system.
    Would you be so kind as to send me a copy of the "welcome" PM... thanks (just curiosity...)

    Why not just post it in GD, then we could argue about it for years!
