Having read both conversations, I disagree. The wording is different (for one major thing), more info has been added, different folks have joined and left, and some folks had never even heard of it, and some folks have changed their minds. (Even more of them have made up their minds, having been neutral in the first place.) But none of that is really relevant, because if we're going to respect the idea of stopping a conversation because someone asks, then I ask that we stop discussing asking/telling/forcing others to stop discussing things altogether. Listception! :D

>Subject: [Ansteorra] Beating a dead kitten
>Discussion? Or beating a dead kitten? This is the second time this year that this topic was brought up and it has gone the same way both time with the exact same people on the pro and con sides.
>The bod asked for your input. My inbox didn't.
>Take any angle at this you want but you're not going to change minds one way or the other on this list.
>Any "discussion" about this kitten after this will solely be looked at as people wanting to hear themselves talk for no other reason than to enjoy the sound of their own voice.
>So start your letters to the bod and please stop beating this dead kitten.
