Any discussion taking place on -private but belonging to a public list
is a violation of our social contract.

The point of posting to -project is to invite possible further
discussion about this (wether you, your mom or someone else is
responsible for moving a thread that does not belong to -private) to
take place on -project rather than -private.

Does it make sense now?

How would it make sense to have this very conversation on -private?!?
