Which was utterly my fault. It should never have been described that way,
and I'm gobsmacked that a random historical mistake such as this is being
interpreted as "newspeak", "changing policy", "conspiracy", etc. We fixed
the description because it was broken, and made it unclear as to how the
lists should be used. End of story. I don't see why this needs to be a big
deal. You appear to be wasting more time on meta-discussion about the list
than investing time in thoughtful on-topic discussion, help, answers, etc.,
and that has an impact on *everyone*. Please be thoughtful about what you
choose to post about, as every email goes to >500 people.
