Peter, keep your head in the sand and continue with your example to others.
The issues brought to light clearly require a broader audience. So be it

Subject: [DNS] Responsibilities of contributors


I recognize that the subject line may be foreign to some contributors whose
psychotic egos drive them to hide behind anonymity - in addition to which
they become boringly repetitive.

The DNS list used to provide a realistic discussion of real issues with
(mainly) adult intelligent participants, however I find that I have to
agree with Adrian (Ausregistry) that it now serves no purpose whatsoever.

I find this to be a pity since the internet is still in its formative
stages and genuine public input is needed if it is "to serve the people"
rather than "the people serving it"

Personally I would like to see this forum continue - but with sufficient
rules to attract back a more informed and informative audience.

By rules I don't mean censorship ... but I would ban any anonymous
statement. I would enforce a declaration of true identity - perhaps by each
contributor having their identity verified by a "moderator" who would issue
them with a user-name/password to gain entry to make comments and being
obliged in all communications to quote their personal identity, a real (not
web-based) email address and a declaration of interest.

I would not see the job of the "moderator" to be more than to ensure that
these rules are kept and that the medium is used to promote constructive
rather than purely destructive ideas. Those who persistently violated the
common courtesies of every-day society could easily be ostracized by
individual members using their email facilities as I do and filter out the
idiots to the "trash" can.

Until the enforcement of true identity and declaration of interest becomes
a reality - I - like a number of those before me am abandoning this list.
