Ok. It's probably the case that I went too far there, and I do apologise
for that. However, I /do/ think we need to be more willing to apply
social pressure against people whose sole contribution to mailing lists
is to disrupt them. The status-quo is plainly not desperately helpful,
and I'm not a fan of using technical or policy measures as anything
other than an absolutely final resort.
