If you are interested in opinions no matter what
they are then you won't mind if someone starts to
randomly forward postings from any of the usenet
As long as it does not constitute a deliberate DoS attack or some other attempt
to overload, compromise, or bring down my system, I don't care. I get junk mail
all day long; most of it is automatically directed into the trash.
The question here is not whether or not someone
has a right to voice their opinion, but whether
or not they have a right to voice their opinion
in this forum.
So which opinions are permitted in this forum, and which are not, and why?
If this was a mailing list dedicated to earthworms
and a posting on IPv8 was repeatedly sent to the
list in various forms, you would have to agree that
it would be inappropriate.
Yes, but I don't read messages that don't interest me.
Apparently this person has been sending many allegedly irrelevant messages to
the list. I don't really know, however, because if they were not among the
minority of messages that interest me, I probably deleted them without reading
them. It's a simple operation, really, with most e-mail programs. To some
extent it can even be done automatically.
The IETF mailing list is supposed to be used only
for items which are of interest to the entire group
of participants regardless of the working group
they participate in.
There isn't anything on this list that is interesting to the _entire_ group of
persons reading it.
