I see what you mean.

Are the discussions in question valuable? No, they are about as useful
as a chocolate teapot.

Cool, I'll carry on with the kill-lists then. If any of the
participants would ever consider contributing anything remotely
valuable in future, I'll remain in blissful ignorance. Despite me
participating in one or two of the threads, I consider them to be
ultimately harmful to the Fedora Project, and to Red Hat, a point I
have stated.

It's a shame there is no facility to block at source though, on the
list server. That would be a useful addition, as that would cut down
on the amount of bandwidth used.

I better disable Amavis on outgoing mail then. I think I'm in the same
boat. ;-)
