Read the lwn.net article about hot babe. The easily offended editor 
mentioned that the --color functionality of ls offends him and he wants it 
gone.

If a reviewer feels the same your page will be swamped with "bogus" 
reports of offending tools.

Or if another fedora user disagrees with a tool being flagged as 
"inappropriate", he might even remove the tool from the list.

As you neither did define the relation of T or F to either p or q your 
"proof" is just a logical fallacy.
I fear the same is true for your inappropriateness-rating. It's full of 
fail.

I think your missing the point. People pointing out problems with your 
approach are not off-topic. They are very much on-topic. Declaring their 
objections as off-topic doesn't make the underlying problem go away.

Read the discussion, read the comment placed directly on the page.


I think the best way of solving your issue is to gather other people 
interested in your specific spin and generate a list of acceptable 
programs.
Don't base it on any opinion a random fedora user might or might not have.
Have the list on a page you directly control. This is especially 
important as any programm you might not flag correctly will reflect badly 
on your spin.

The wiki on fedoraproject.org is most likely not the right place for such 
a list.

You know the saying: Right tool for the right job.
