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@ !!
