Doers vs talkers will be an issue no matter where you go. Thread
participants should also self-moderate to avoid rehashing the same points
ad nauseum.

I think other lists aren't nearly as active as general discuss lists, and
splitting them off allows for the fringe to dominate (or just kills
discussion.) Announce lists are good for people who don't care to discuss.
I don't see this "politics/ethics" thread going on for months, at some
point you just agree to disagree.
