I agree with both points.  I don't think anybody disagrees, so let's
not belabor them, either -- after all, the point here is that people
keep posting about things that don't help solve real problems.

I have two proposals on the table ("cloture" and "redirect people
dissatisfied with the offered rationale to a more appropriate channel
for discussion").  Perhaps we could discuss those, or propose
additional or better ways to improve the situation, or a better
channel for this "meta" discussion itself?  After Nick's post, I think
there's no denying that Antoine has plenty of company in frustration
-- there is a systematic problem here.
