I don't. I agree with that. I would welcome some insight as to how you
feel that decision was bi- or multi-lateral, or how the *users* were
consulted.

May I ask where this discussion was held? I read darn near all of this
mailing list, and I particularly care about threads like that one, and I
do not recall much support for webfora on this list at all.

Furthermore, I politely beg to call "bullshit" at a "...general tone
from many of the thread participants that endusers [sic] were really not
welcome on fedora-list." Many, if not most, of the thread participants I
remember, and many, if not most, of the strongest, most prolific, and
most useful contributors to this list consistently express the
conviction that this list is made up OF users, built FOR users, staffed
BY users, who try to HELP OTHER USERS. That's all we do here!

Please, show me where "many" people here say that end-users are not
really welcome on fedora-list. Because that statement contradicts the
loads of stuff that come through my inbox. Directly. Irreconcilably.
And, I believe, incorrectly.

Cheers,
