There is an appeals process (of that we are too painfully aware)
that can be used for people who are told by a WG Chair that
they are using the mailing list in an inappropriate manner, and still
insist on continuing their behavior.

It's still subject to human bias.

I have found that only the worst managers deal with
bad apples by burdening the entire group with oppressive rules.

I agree.  But managers who apply oppressive rules selectively are just
as bad.
