As soon as you have evaluated the claim, even for "exact duplication"
or "it's spam", haven't you done exactly what the pages claim not to
do (take a position on the validity of the claim)? I know that sounds
silly, but it seems to me that any evaluation _at all_ is
automatically a contravention of what the pages say the IETF does. If
the pages are just a list of claims, including bogus ones, then the
IETF has taken no position at all. As soon as some of them have been
evaluated, we're at the top of a slippery slope, I think.
