Roy's missives are not papal bulls.  He is entitled to espouse his opinion and I am entitled
to not read it; though I almost always do.  :)

My point is that we need something more formal than digging through yards of drivel to find
nuggets of real discussion that don't amount to pleas to be emotionally validated.  Even then,
just because someone espouses an opinion it does not become law because others have stopped
replying, implying lazy consensus where sometimes it's really that opposing opinions walked
or were bullied away.

Really, we need something more formal.  Lite, but formal.
