[school-discuss] Perhaps a brief description

I wonder if URL posters could be talked into including a short
paragraph regarding the content of the site they're suggesting.

For those who pay a lot for bandwidth, it isn't a simple matter of
clicking on the link to visit a website.  Since I always read mail
offline, I have to decide whether it's worth going back online to
check the URL, or even saving it to a temporary folder to check later,
etc.  With a short description I could decide whether it's worth it
... and if it's important enough, maybe immediately  ;-)

Unfortunately, often it's a reposting of an article I've read
elsewhere, or not what I thought it would be.

It might help others, too, at the cost of just a little more effort on
the part of the poster.  Thanks for any consideration you might give.
