I don't care if there's a cabal to discuss whether or not America,
Hy-Brazil, Eurasia, and Scandinavia are continents or not.  I don't
care if there's a cabal who thinks that Maudite doesn't taste awful.
I don't care if there's a cabal that thinks procreation is a good
thing.  None of these things need to be on -private.

There are legitimate reasons to be subscribed to -private, and
none of them require tolerating off-topic discussion.  "Good"
discussion would not seem to be irrelevant.  If it's not meant to
be secret, it shouldn't be there.  I cannot imagine why this simple
idea would be controvertible.
