If you have issues with the administration of this list
you should
*) vote with your feet
*) take it up with the listowner offline, as he will not
be entering into public debates about how the list is
managed. (In part because, quite like this thread, it's
not about technical communication.)
*) deal with it

If you do not understand the list management decisions,
that indicates one of the following:
*) you do not have all of the information that the listowner
*) you do not see the issue in the same light that the
listowner does
*) you cannot read the listowner's mind

The only means of rectifying any of these three cases are listed
above. Quibbling on the list is _not_ one of the means of
rectifying them.

"If it's not about technical communication, don't post it."
