(BTW, I don't want a football site - that would only help me with this question. I'm looking for a site where anybody can ask anything, because I know I'm going to need more help with other stuff in the future.)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Why would you want to limit research to information from other writers? The best answers are more likely to be found in the area of interest, not from any form of third party. Google, Google Scholar or Wolfram Alpha are good starting points.
