We agree on very little, but one thing we do agree on is the quantity of
trolling that DOES occur on -dev when these issues are brought up. Is
there any method by which a discussion can be had on -PMS in a smaller
forum, and a proposal could thereby be brought to -dev in several weeks
agreed upon here, and subsequently submitted to the Council? I'm hoping
this will reduce the potential for trolling.
