A reasonable and right-thinking person knows what the purpose of any
mailing list is and is aware that posting mails which do not serve the
purpose of the list is ill-mannered and inconsiderate. A dedicated list
for such people is taking it to far. Especially as it has all the
flavour of closing the stable door.

I'd suggest vgui-discuss as a suitable test-bed. Or debian-devel for
living dangerously. :)
