what i consider more critical is e.g. that someone posted to a Zope-list
saying that Zope could greatly make use of PEP-308 so everybody
should just vote for it.

Next somebody comes up with posting to comp.lang.* saying:
here is a really good opportunity to knock out a competitor :-)

Just keep it going so that we can at least win the february
statistics for news-group activity.  For that matter we should
make everybody vote to the list and let people comment on the
votes.  We could even make it to CNN this way ...

... key players in the software industry realized the high potential
of the dot.py boom as Google declared the impossibility of tracking
the various too fast evolving threads of .py development ...
