Toleration of disagreement has almost nothing to do with it. Instead, it's
more a matter of signal to noise ratio on a limited bandwidth channel. If
you fill up a list with ignorant drivel, people who don't have time to deal
with drivel will go away, leaving the list to those who produce the drivel.
That's the problem. I've seen it happen many times.
