I fully agree with the below post, for what it's worth. They're a bit more formal, windows tech support questions will probably be squashed, but then those are off-topic anyway. They do joke, so they're not off-topic nazi's.

Hi Elf. As far as I can tell, and I've been on both lists for a number of years the guys on that list are very much like the guys on this list. As has been said the tone is a little different, seems more focused on programming, less general enquiries but jokes have been posted before and weren't squashed, web development questions and the like have been asked and answered and there are some very knowledgeable and experienced people on that list. What does worry me a little is that no information has been posted on program-l about this merge. As said in a previous post, I don't really mind either way, but I don't see it as losing a community. The community will still be there, just in a different place and with some more members. Just my thoughts. Nick.
