I think It's not so much the reports themselves that people are really complaining about. It's when people reply to said reports.

Hi everyone,
Could I first of all please ask you all to calm down? From what I have seen, the babble and thread reports have been coming on list now for years and I haven't really seen anyone complain up until this point. Though that doesn't mean to say there hasn't been any. I will stand corrected if I am wrong. Although I find it interesting to read through them I can see both sides here. Although this is a games list I am sure Jim will have okayed these emails with the list moderators and owners and said moderators and owners will have allowed such postings for a reason. To me, it can come across as a fun bantering contest with bragging rights about who can post the most or least messages on list. However, I can also see the other side in that trying to beat a message posting score can lead to unnecessary messages such as one-liners and days of talk about these reports coming on list. I think I will have to review this situation with Thomas and see where we go from here. If it is really so inconvenient then we will, I'm sure, come to some agreement. However, calling people childish and irresponsible isn't the way to ask for something. Constructive criticism is one thing, flaming is another. So can we please remember that when posting and maybe not post immediately as soon as your anger and frustration flares up.
Thanks.
Regards,
Damien Pendleton,
Co-Moderator.

 I completely agree with Fred here.
One reason I don't follow this list much is because of all the crap messages with no real content sent to list, such as the babel report replies. I am only monitoring right now to check feedback for Ryans soon to be excellent boxing game. We would have more developers on this list chiming in and helping with constructive ideas if there wasn't so much meaningless fluff in my opinion. Running a list that stays on topic and minimizes crap posts is not an easy thing, I know that, but there really is no point at all in the babel urination contest. Not only is conversation about who has the most posts meaningless, but it leads to one line and even sometimes one word emails to list. I don't mean to sound like a cranky old man here, but I hate to see a resource like the gamers list not reach its full potential when we have so few outlets for discussing our shared interest.
 Later,
che
