Excellent post that Random!
Concise and direct, like something an SE would put together.
Maybe consider raising this post as a separate thread, getting it locked by mods & stickied at the top of the forum?
There is already a '' Sticky '' thread in RFA forum with Joining the RFA as it's title.
Maybe get @Multiirishman to change the title of this THEN make it a sticky.
Or copy Random's post and start a new thread with it......RFA Q&A ?.
