This is understandable, and a better answer would have been, take a look
at the list archives--the somewhat harsh reaction is because there have
been several acrimonious discussions about it.  We do tend to forget
that not everyone has been on the list through that discussion--that is
why, however, part of the reaction was, Is this a joke?  (When I saw the
thread title, I thought it was a joke.)

The RHEL5 and CentOS 5 isn't all that good a yardstick, because, in this
case, RH also made some point releases, 5.6 and 4 something--errm, 9?
(sorry, not using it so haven't paid much attention.)

Seriously, you should take a look at the list archives for this month
(it'll be easy to tell by title what threads are relevant), and that
will, hopefully, allow you to understand why you've gotten the sorts of
answers that you have received.

I honestly don't think that it's a good thing to join a list and start
criticizing the answers you receive before looking at archives and
getting a feeling for the particular list.  

Anyway, there really isn't a short answer to the question, as you'll see
if you view said archives.

 Giles: This one?
 Buffy: Amethyst.
 Giles: Used for?
 Buffy: Breath mints?
 Giles: Charm bags, money spells and for cleansing one's aura.
 Buffy: Okay, so how do you know if one's aura's dirty? Somebody
comes by with a finger and writes 'wash me' on it?
