I wonder why nobody's complaining about all this traffic on this
non-technical thread on a list that people complained was supposed to
be restricted to technical content.  Heck, why was the discussion even
started here?  Double standards, as usual?

Seems like that's the general feeling of those who demand silence
about it.  Perhaps a separate list named "fedora-truth" or
"fedora-ethics", for this kind of discussion, would make it clear
enough that truth and ethics are not welcome on other lists.

Or maybe the support list should be named fedora-immoralist ;-P :-D
