I'm glad you mentioned this because honestly I've been tempted to say
something for quite some time.  Personally, I don't understand why the
code reviews aren't being done in a more appropriate group or project
forum -- one matching the project that the bug is categorized in or
even a (non-existent) "code-reviews-discuss".  I've personally viewed
this forum as spammed with patches and mini-reviews, and although I
lament the situation, I'm not sufficiently irked enough to want to
police it myself.

I've just thrown some filters at the irritation, gotten over my
idealogical angst, assumed I was the only one so bothered, and moved
on. Please don't take this as a shut-up.

Just so I don't sound like a nit-ninny, I suppose I could offer for
consideration a possible solution[1] :
 - create a new discussion form where _all_ code-reviews are conducted,
 - hijack "code-discuss" for this purpose, or
 - steer people towards the appropriate forum (according to bug categorization).
