Not surprising as d-d-l is useless, but not because of the topic. IMO
things should be discussed beforehand to get consensus.

If you mean that d-d-l is basically a town hall where everyone is
shouting, yes I agree. However, the signal to noise ratio I see is loads
of noise, almost no signal. Really, I am never going to try and discuss
things anymore. It is pointless and makes me sad.
Yes, perhaps in the avalanche of messages there are a few useful ones.
Not worth the effort. Plus, there is no consensus (or not that I see).
Better to just skip the whole consensus part and force things through.
