I find this so amusing.  

You claim this is an "open" process, yet you guys are talking about
filtering people out, because your opinion differs to theirs.

Well I guess there is one good thing to come from filters.  Less opposition
to opinion, thus more decisions are made and I have less time wasted
explaining the same issues over and over.  I think I'll create an FAQ one
of these days.

Selective "deafness" isn't a good attitude to put forward.  It shows fear
that the person you are "selectively" ignoring is a threat.

But that's fine. Your choice.  I choose to read every email message.  I
might learn something.  If I wish to filter, it's to a sepearate folder so
I can read a specific persons comments later.

Never heard of a court "filtering" witnesses before.
