Mark Rosewater's blog is pretty popular and he gets dozens of e-mails every day. As you can probably imagine, he gets a lot of the same responses often.

In an attempt to cut down on some of the redundancy, he's created an FAQ for blog questions. You may not realize you care about some of this stuff until you read it, but if you're not inclined to comb through Maro's blog every day, taking a minute or two to read the FAQ could answer a question you've always wondered about but never asked. It's a decent way to kill a few minutes on the toilet, anyway. Thanks, smartphones.

He addressed something we all care about, by the way.

When will you get rid of the Reserved List?

Never. Also, it is not a topic I am supposed to discuss suffice to say it is a promise we made long ago that we plan to keep.

So we've got that going for us, which is nice.
