Thank you for the restrained reply, Eucke

Wearing my '@centos.org' hat, let me add that I strongly 
concur to the effect that 'shaming' on a mailing list is 
probably not something to encourage; advising as to better 
practice, or better, simply staying still if one has nothing 
new to add are often fine responses to some posts.

We have a place to use social pressure toward education and 
growth as a sysadmin, in the ground rules of avoiding 
'spoonfeeding' in the #centos IRC channel, and that's about 
all; we have not had inquiries there yet about 'baby mulching 
machines or atomic bombs' [1], but I suppose we would answer 
the centos 'on topic' part.  We would send the off topic away, 
either to #centos-social (if it looked like we conld amuse 
that channel), or to a more appropirate venue for remaining 
off topic matter.
