Possibly so, but I can't see c.l.p.dev passing up the chance to discuss 
this particular bicycle shed. It gets kind of personal when someone is 
spamming *your* tracker ... ;-)

I have already been criticized on c.l.py for suggesting there should be 
at least one day of the year when we should be allowed to hang spammers 
up by the nuts (assuming they have any) - "not very welcoming" was the 
phrase, IIRC. So maybe I'm no longer rational on this topic.
