Please be aware that it was pointed out that one can configure
org-agenda-skip-unavailable-files to a non-nil value if she wants
non-existing/unreadable files to be skipped.
But that option isn't mentioned in the manual or the docstring of the
org-agenda-files option. The problem is known and has been a source of great
frustration, that's why it was introduced.
Daniela is quite right. If multiple people don't want to help her, that's
fine, many others will.
