"Technically I'm not violating the rules" is the weakest argument. Can you just please save everyone the headache of litigating this and act a little more professional and a little less silly on the mailing list? (And on IRC if I'm asking) Here's a good approximation to determine whether your mail is worth sending: before you press send, ask yourself if the person you're replying to gains anything by reading your reply. If the answer is on the range "unlikely" to "no", then just don't send the reply.
