... if you don't know about something, learn about it. How do I learn about it? By reading about it. This guy wants to learn about it, and he wants to learn about it on the site he likes best, also thinking it would at the same time help other people who might find it interesting but don't have time to study it.
By extending your logic, we could ask, why read (informative) stories at all? After all, if you're interested in it, researching it shouldn't be that bad...
And about your suggestions to pester peolpe with email, diary, K5 IRC, they're just ineffective. He might not know who to ask. He might have to spend all day whining about it on IRC. If you suggest him to find people on IRC etc to write it, why is it so repulsive to add a forum specifically meant for this purpose (as opposed to something meant for idle chat, apparently), making things easier to those wanting to know about it and those who want to write about something?
there's hole up in the sky from where the angels fall to sire children that grow up too tall, there's hole down in the ground where all the dead men go down purgatory's highways that gun their souls
