And this is not that, in case you missed it the first time.  It is
a blatent and transparent attempt to link a legitimate issue with
a frankly controversial one and provide a figleaf for introducing
it into an inappropriate forum.  If _you_ want to discuss it, fine.
There are newsgroups for it.  This list _isn't_ the place.
