I'd point out that no one has brought up any sort of quantitative analysis
of say... percentage of mailing list discussion devoted to "politics"
versus "other" overall throughput or even a citation of a purpose / mission
statement for the list.

So this entire thread is effectively a flame war instigated by rudimentary

And I am really bringing all of this up because it was rudimentary.  Throw
in some pie graphs next time.  Christ.  I want to see some effort people my
cell phone demands better.
