Oops, sorry. Of course I was only referring to the discussion area.

Anyway, if we kill the discussions and leave the news, we'll probably
be accused of "censorship", turning Gnotices into a
"propaganda site", what do I know... I can already vividly imagine the
unfavorable comparions to we'd be going to see.

My opinion: Leave the discussions up, but require registration. Maybe
we could also grant some moderator rights to all the people with CVS
write access. A moderation scheme like the ones Slashdot, Avogato or
Everything2 feature would be complete overkill, though.

The coding community is not a corporate help desk or suggestions box.
We've got our reasons for things being like they are. If you're not
satisfied with this, join, fund or otherwise support the coding
community. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.
