The trouble with a fixed link is that either that server gets overloaded
or one has to post to a list of servers which is a nuisance. Perhaps
this could be included at the bottom of each post instead:
Before posting, search docs for xyz via R command: RSiteSearch("xyz")
and if you still need to post please include a REPRODUCIBLE code snippet.
