Since when in the advocacy/chat lists do people
discuss about anything of the above you mentioned?

If an OS wants to show (off) that "manly", then
leave only 2 lists : -hackers, and -current,
(ok and -stable for the incompetent poor users).

If, on the other hand, by this way, you want
to express some "call for arms" for potential FreeBSD
kernel/port developers,(fishing them from these "light" lists),
then i doubt you choose the right way.
