Hello everybody, I'm new here and just trying to proceed slowly--had lots of issues by getting ahead of myself, I think. My current path is working so far. :D

Welcome to the gentooniverse (that's not a thing, I just made it up). Are you coming from another distro or another OS?

HerbMillerJW ... that would be an example of an oft used tactic you'll see quite a lot of ... generic subject and content, and some time from now they head back, edit the post(s), and insert spam links. Its one method spammers have found to work around 'reports' (because once the post has passed into history no one will notice). Mods keep an eye on such accounts, and they should be reported as suspicious (as I did with this). Of course, one in a million its a genuine user, but no harm done if that's the case, I'll eat my hat ;)
