I don't mean personal criticism of any one person.  But ...
There's Far too much idle chat on advocacy at . Some should subscribe chat@, 
& some of us should direct windy threads & people to chat@

Noise to signal ratio on advocacy@ remains so high I'm considering 
unsubscribing again, unfortunate as I'm interested in Practical BSD advocacy
   ( Created a BSD-UG, initiated BSD leaflet for exhibitions,
     organised BSD stands etc http://berklix.org/bim/leaflet/ ).

Advocacy@ should contain only what Helps BSD Advocacy, eg:
	"Who will help man a BSD stand in _Your_City_ in 2 weeks ?"
	"Who will help man a BSD install event in _Your_City_ in 2 weeks ?"
	"Who will co-author a BSD book ?"
	"Here's a _maintained_ URL, to print/forward to acquaintances who 
	 ask the eternal question: "Why use BSD rather than Linux ?""

No defocused chat on advocacy@ please.  _Please_ chat on chat@   !!
