You must be new to this mailing list :)

no -- this post was intentional on my part as part of a new 
approach to this mailing list's 'poisonous people' [1] ... I 
am going to try: stop ignoring public misbehaviour, and rather 
point it out expressly (that is: 'shame' rather than 'shun')

Sort of like St. Patrick driving the Celtic snake spirits out 
of Ireland

'Banishment' either by way of unsubscription, or moderation
cannot work -- a troll will just subscribe another sock puppet

Well-known trolls who find their entertainment during the 
workday sowing discontent here, with the techniques of 
'Twenty-Five Rules of Disinformation' [2] and otherwise, will 
be invited by me to put up or shut up

We'll see how (and if) this works -- it formerly worked well 
in the IRC channel where we could use a LART; dunno that it 
will work here
