Hey folks, all of you, could I please sugggest that this entire thread (under a
variety of subject names) is an abuse of the lists?  These topics should
definitely occur, something like this has to happen ocaisonally, but it needs to
go to FreeBSD-chat, where the list topics are very specifically allowed great
latitude.  The FreeBSD-Questions list is very obvioiusly to help folks, and not
to debate list usage, or any of the varied purposes it's been pushed to recently.

I'm not saying don't discuss it, I'm saying, if it's *not* FreeBSD tech support,
then please take it to FreeBSD-Chat, where you folks all know it belongs.  Some
of the comments I've seen threatening silly things liek dropping FreeBSD itself
for abuse of lists, shouldn't ask for censorship, but those kind of complaints
actually should be complaints about where these things are going to.  You can
discuss *absolutely* anything you want on FreeBSD-chat, so why don't you take
advantage of that?  I myself will actively support anyone's privilege to say
whatever they please, if you just use the correct list to do it.
