Sorry, I don't uderstand that logic. With your private list you don't 
reduce the OT ratio on this list. However you want to periodically 
advertise your private list which is OT here IMHO. Therefore you would 
intentionally _increase_ the OT ratio of this list. While I don't 
necessarily like the current OT ratio, I definitely don't like spam 
here. Feel free to disagree - I'm only speaking for myself, not for the 
entire list.
