Agreed ! Many replies were sent to Wrong lists.
Original poster & respondents abused stable@ & questions@
Cross posting 2 lists un-necessarily, despite:
"C.1.3 List Charters
Rules of the road:
No posting should be made to more than 2
mailing lists, and only to 2 when a clear
and obvious need ..."
There was a desire, as always, but no need. (so I
removed cc: stable@ on this post, to avoid this
post also breaking that rule, (on the basis that
stable@ readership are more likely to already know
about Not cross posting, & using the Right list,
as questions@ started as a target list to point
clueless new users to, from /etc/motd. (It was
expected as users grew experienced, they'd subscribe
other lists themed to their interests.)))
Noise was emitted to lists with wrong remits.
advocacy at freebsd.org exists for promo. talk inc. re. wiki.
Please read list remits, & conform to them, & subscribe appropriate lists.
