I think the point was how the re-directing was phrased. A little courtesy goes 
a long way, but hostility towards newbies is un-warranted.

Sometimes people post to the wrong list by accident, or lack of understanding. 
A gentle reminder is sufficient for most. The separate lists are more for 
those who are only interested in certain aspects of LFS's development. 
Posting questions to the right list helps ensure that people with experience 
are reading the queries and can offer help. Not just to reduce the traffic to 
each list.

A question about building X, for instance has a better chance of getting 
informed answers on the BLFS list rather than the LFS one.
