1) debian-user is INFORMATIVE for folks who are looking for answers.
2) debian-user is chock-full of helpful people.
3) debian-user often gets questions answered in a matter of hours.
4) with apt-get, you expect /debian/ users to have trouble? :)
-1) debian-user is flooded with all kinds of flotsam
-2) debian-user occasionally sends a newbie to rtfm
-3) debian-user still is unmoderated, so folks like s.lamb get through :)
