Yes, worrying, but a seperate problem.
I suggested send-pr also for the Method: 

  Regular cross posters of hot air on advocacy@ seem probably half
  incompetent.  It'll take them time to learn to create better
  sources, & use diff -c & send-pr, during which they'll post less
  crap, & after they'll be more educated with less need to post
  noise as their only `Contribution'.

Commiters decide what is worthy. Convince a committer, & job
done. Commiters have a structure of answerability to colleagues.

Yes, not good if we got a flood of noise via send-pr for cvs/www:
Better for those who like to talk web to susbscribe www at .

Content of advocacy@ will remain mostly a cesspit until the over
opinionated & under skilled learn Not to excrete here without payment.
Pay Here:	man send-pr ; send-pr
