	Nope. Not one bit. It's about keeping conversation in the right 
direction; keeping people from getting in the weeds.

	Actually, if you poke around the Ubuntu & Canonical websites, I'm sure 
you will find those names. When they created this list, they decided 
that thier list shall have a certain focus on the topics discussed. So 
by that design, of course certain (many?) viewpoints are not desirous on 
this list.
	Other places, however, I'm sure they are welcomed.

	Karl? Sure... His posting of dangerously incomplete  & incorrect 
information was bad.
	Space Ghost & Res? Dunno, but they did provide good information...
