what exactly do you mean? the word whining makes me think everything that would be in this forum should be on a blog, elsewhere. But the way I understand what you're saying, web related questions? Those would probably go in Networking.
This is a reason if you reply to a member you feel inappropiately asked question that should belong in another forum, then let them know to educate them.
Say a member has a problem with connecting to Apache, it could easily fit right into Networking. Now say they have an issue configuring Apache to listen on Port 8080, this could be Networking or Software related. But creating a gazillion subforums for everytype of software isn't going to solve the issue, only cause more confusion and cross-posting.
I think that what Trickykid was referring to was the fact that, from time to time, we get a spate of threads asking for new foums and sub-forums.
Before creating a forum, we need to know "does the forum solve a clearly defined problem?". "Will this forum be obviously seperate from the current ones?". "Will creating it cause unnecessary mis-posting and cross-posting?".
Oh and "will creating the forum cause a hassle for the mods?"
