Well, I can assure you we didn't moderate or ban that particular
thread at all :)

Might well be that people got tired discussing the subject?

Thanks a lot for the comparison :-(, don't you think you exaggerate a
bit? *sigh* I take this remark for what it is, namely just a
confirmation of Goodwins Law [1] and very much hope that my three
co-moderators do not take offense neither.

For your information: moderating is only done when someone repeatedly
does not respect the list rules. So far it seems the sole announcement
of an eventual moderation has been efficient enough to remind people
the purpose of this list.There are for now two moderation flags, and
both are here only to make sure the list doesn't get flooded by spam
or by definitely OT remarks in a technical thread.

Not a single post has been rejected so far since the activation of
these two flag, BTW...

Regards, Myriam.
