> Yes.  It was JJ, who is opposed to name-changing, who is polling the group about this, which wasn't anyone's proposal.  Sort of a slight-of-hand, mob-rule kind of trick.  But, I say this smiling, because it is amusing and not so important.  I just thought the pending length of the new lists' names was a good excuse to bend the name a little and appease us who are not content with the name.  But, clearly JJ didn't agree and put forward a losing proposal instead.

I object to this characterization of my behavior.  My main objection
to the name change is due to the burden it places on all the members.
I never even seriously considered having two lists with different
prefixes.  Those who know me well know that I'm a stickler for
consistency, so I would naturally object to two lists, one called
baypiggies at python.org and the other bp-announce at python.org.

Where you are looking to see maliciousness, there is only my obsessive
compulsive need to make things consistent ;)

No offense taken, though.  Let's move on.
