When I Google for <Python FAQ>, almost all of the search results on the 
first page are Python FAQs. The third link even has a "newsgroup" FAQ 
although I doubt it is what you want, even though you said otherwise.

Therefore I asked a question on why you want a *newsgroup* FAQ when it 
sounds like you want a *Python* FAQ, so that I and others could 
potentially be more helpful in answering your unasked question.

I can't understand why you think your list slicing problem is specific 
to the newsgroup and not to Python.

If that's the way you respond to people who are trying to help you, 
please do so.
