That would be a waste of time. You would be working under the totally
unproven assumption that it would actually be read or adhered to.

Now, if this forum were open only to subscribers and when they
subscribed this info was presented in the "welcome" message and if they
were forewarned that even thinking about asking this question of the
forum would result in their banishment from the forum, then perhaps
you might have a working solution.

I give Wietse a lot of credit for the way he runs his Postfix forum.
Continuing a post after its usefulness has waned, or asking
unrelated questions, etc. can and does get you banished from the group.
Maybe it is time to get a moderator with a set for this forum.
