Background Information Preferable

Hey guys. It seems that in these first few threads there has been a considerable amount of background posted before an actual question or discussion point is brought up. I think this is a good idea. Namely, even though one's discussion may be aimed at someone who already knows the topic at hand letting new-comers into the conversation by at least giving them an idea of what you're talking about not only makes the forum more interesting but broadens the chance for a successful and fulfilling discussion.
