It's not relative.  Anyone not subscribed to devel@ gets a message
telling them their posting is rejected.  Not just held for moderation
but rejected.

I think it's important to let others know that they will also be treated
rudely if they attempt to cross-post to the openmpi list.  I'll be happy
to continue this conversation with you in private, if you wish, but have
not done so in this mail to respond to your mischaracterisation of my
actions as "grandstanding".

"Bill, look, we understand that you're interested in selling us this
operating system, but compare it to ours.  We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
