Great post, and excellent honeytrap: all the poisonous people flocked
immediately to this thread and started debating it furiously.
- verbosity/spamminess *is* disruptive. It takes a lot of time to
read, and invariably someone will respond, causing more posts. Worse,
it causes sensible people to tune out entirely, meaning threads
consist of little more than spammy bastards rehashing old arguments.
"If you don't like it, don't read it" is not a solution.
- Let's not tar all Australians with the same brush. Some of us are
supportive of the license changes, and pulling our heads in and just
- A moderator for the key mailing lists would be a very sensible step.
I have volunteered in the past. No one should have the right to post
whatever and as much as they like with no accountability.
