-1 for wp-bikeshed. Shed color arguments never happen in a forum
created for that purpose. Use wp-discuss.

+1 for "show me the code" and "put up or shut up". The people you are
complaining about on wp-hackers aren't actually hackers, i.e. won't
code or won't learn to code. Maybe their opinions have value but they
have subverted this list against the actual hackers. By all means
create a new list but that won't fix wp-hackers. You must repel
unwanted behavior.

I admit that my habit of Muting every wp-hackers thread doesn't help.
If that's the way I'm going to be I should unsubscribe.
