Discomfort with Sourceforge
For a while now people have been expressing concern about Sourceforge's
continued hosting of the bitcoin-dev mailing list. Downloads were moved

Exactly -- both block size proponents and block size change conservatives
seem to be glossing over this aspect - much to my dismay.
Choosing the size limit is choosing the size of a scarce resource. By fiat.
It is wrong to think that a technical consensus can choose what is best
