This list can be found by a simple search on the Internet, we're not 
hidden :)
I believe any person who makes the effort of buying a book on a topic 
(DNS in that case), reading it,
and subscribing then posting on a mailing-list related to this topic, 
should be free to do it.

So for me it's a big "Yes" - of course we will have "newbie" questions, 
but this is also how you spread knowledge, right?
