It appears that cross posting keeps things alive in more than one place.
I wonder if those who admin the lists want to think about blocking cross
posted items. While saying a thread is moved is great for those who are
subscribed to more than one list so they can follow it, it hurts other
Ohh I said users - I meant people, who may not (A) have the time (B) the
inclination and (C) most important the skills to easily follow threads
that are moved around.
Supposing it was more applicable to a NameOtherDebianDerivedList?
Sorry Eric I do not agree that these things can move about, therefore I
popped this on sounder, I read user, sounder, dev, marketing, sec,
announce, dapper accepted, a couple of different lugs, a sage (if I can
still call it that) chapter, personal mail, a committee for something, a
bsd list, special interest stuff. Should I subscribe to others? Just to
follow a thread seems unreasonable.
Just a thought, please feel free to be provoked.
Now if you want to talk about what is on topic and what is off topic
then that is a whole other discussion.
