RE: [council] GA Chair nominations
Can you give an estimate in cost - including human time cost - that this is
causing? The estimate in cost is helpful - it gives a strong argument, in my
view, that the list will either need to be closed, or we determine a means
(I need to review the various ones we've discussed) make sure that this is
handled the best way possible. Also, what is the impact to have one open
list that is not checked, ie.., is as the GA is but without all your hard
work to get rid of the spam, and one that is closed, with a limit of e.g., 3
postings per day.
These multiple personalities, and the bombarding of the network, are
unacceptable. And something has to be done about it b/c it is not okay for
you to end up with a cost that is well beyond what you'd even contemplated

Your advice may be usefull for the end user, but at the
DNSO Secretariat each time we have nominations/endorsements etc
the list is open to anybody from the street, then we need to
manually consider every posting. You see just one hundred
of messages BOUNCE to ga-nomination and you have to sort it out !
After two weeks of manual subscriptions to the ga list, I replaced
it to the normal open+confirm status, and the first subscriber
was guess who ? Yet new JW email from yet new web server offering
free web-based emails. I the game "I will demonstrate the world than
JW may use all your time and prevent you to takle to a real work"
he will always win as long as everybody is paralysed by his cc
to all federal agents, his phone calls etc.
His cost is horrendous.
