Desktop-devel-list is for developers and contributors. Although a bit
harsh, I must admit, Mark's e-mails have stated very clearly the
boundaries of the discussions.

I must say that I welcome this decision as I had already unsubscribed
twice from d-d-l just because of the noise (ie. replying to
uninteresting threads without adding any value to the discussion, see
the "flags" thread for example).

Make sure your discussion are on topic, that they bring value to the
discussion, avoid rehashing already done and gone discussions (button
order...), and better the opinion that other community members would
have of you by avoiding this sort of "compliant" (sic) e-mails, and
trying to make yourself a martyr of the community.

Cheers, and looking forward to more of your contributions.
