There is a fundamental problem with that - this list isnt a support 
list, its a list of and for people who use CentOS to talk about CentOS. 
By thinking of it as a one way support system you have reduced the list 
to essentially a bugtracker / issuetracker / support thread and that in 
itself defeats a very large part of what the list ( and community herein 
) is about.

Just my thoughts anyway
