Which "it"?  That it should have been in devel-discuss?  Or that demanding 
threads be moved is censorship?  Or that it wasn't specifically about 
languages? The first is self-evident, I think, and the second should be.  
It's an attempt to stop people talking about something in "their" list, and 
to make them move discussion to a list they likely aren't even subscribed 
to.  The last was an opinion, which you don't have to agree with, but are 
not in a position to call rubbish.

???  How would you find "this" post unless you were searching for arguments 
about what is allowable on the list?
