The trouble with a fixed link is that either that server gets overloaded or one has to post to a list of servers which is a nuisance. Perhaps this could be included at the bottom of each post instead:

Before posting, search docs for xyz via R command: RSiteSearch("xyz") and if you still need to post please include a REPRODUCIBLE code snippet. See posting guide for more info: http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html
