One of the things that I do when faced with a question on a subject that
doesn't seem to really fit the lists I'm currently subscribed to is to
go over to http://marc.info/ and see if there may be list of interest. 
I look in the various archives and determine if it may be a better fit. 
Then I subscribe and ask my question(s).

I have even stooped so low as to ask for off-line help when I felt the
level of discussion shouldn't be exposed/suffered by others... 

Yet, keep in mind, that's just me....
