I support cfr's contention that in the long run, pointing people to the wiki will focus the emails on questions and solutions that are challenging and unavailable and reduce the traffic. Reduced traffic would help keep our very most valuable members (the ones with the most hard-to-find answers) interested and participatory.
I've done some editing and even contributed an article to the wiki and I certainly support what you've done. But, I'm sure at least some of what I've written is probably in good need of updating.
I'm trying to act as a Devil's Advocate. :-)
