Do you think?  I mean its alright with me if we decide to do so, but I would
prefer a shorter form, again I don't think we are going to be connecting to
usenet any time soon.

I'd like to suggest the following format. which resembles usenet standards,
but not with the long comp.os.linux.lfs.topic.subtopic  format.

lfs.blfs      (this would be for general discussion and support)
lfs             (general chat and support)

But again, this now lends itself to the question, since everything is
prefaced with lfs. (or linuxfromscratch.), then why can't we just drop lfs.
