I don't know. Would you do that? Instead of waiting one day?

By the way - that was not a fully drafted policy proposal - but an
example proving that having rules does not equal censorship.

My main point is that to maintain a well working communication channel
we need some self-governance. This would not be easy - as self
governance requires first of all defining community borders - and that
will be difficult here. But we are a political movement - this kind of
problems should not scare us - but rather excite us to check our
policy drafting skills.

Personally I don't think this mailing list so too bad - from time to
time there are some flames - but overall the discussion is quite
civilized. The problem is with perception - it looks that some people
feel helpless when the flames erupt and they just leave the mailing
list. In result the reach of this mailing list is very limited.
