Who cares how often they've posted when their complaint is just?

I feel this thread borders on off-topic: it meets the legal part
but not clearly the debian part. Personally, I killfile rather than
complain too often about off-topic-but-related threads, but some
don't have killfiles and flodding them out of the list weakens us.

But: where is more appropriate? gnu-misc might have been OK for
this one and freeculture lists for some others, but in general
there's nothing serving a debian-legal-related purpose well.
