Fully agree. I have a list of people I mute, and that works for me. But you
can't just throw your hands up and lament the process if you care, because
newcomers will not have this knowledge. I asked for the reasoning because
people were saying it should have been earlier, and I agree.

The pattern I see is that people use non-technical lists to hold forth on
some strange topics. They could get a blog or something, but no one would
read it, so they use the IETF lists for the audience.

Anyway, I support this action, but there seems to be a structural issue as
well.

thanks,
Rob
