Hmmm, even if I'm sure Raphael wants to help the project, I dont think
this idea is a good one, I'm telling you why.

On high-trafic mailing-lists, you find flamewars, ever.

Trying to stop that with an administrative procedure won't fix the
problem and will waste a lot of time and energy.

Moreover, I fear that such things can lead very easily to a very bad
astmosphear within the project.

The best way to deal with flamewars is just to ignore them.

I loose too much time in filtering by hand my debian-devel mailbox to
find non flamewars topics, I don't want to overload this with weekly poll.
