CFD: (was [PATCH] Standardindentation of arguments)

From: Al Viro

This is a call for discussion for new maillist on vger.

List name: linux-wanking@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Rationale: the need for such list has been demonstrated during the last few
months by rapid increase in the amount of traffic topical for such list
(and completely unrelated to any kind of kernel development) misposted on
linux-kernel. A separate list dedicated to this kind of self-gratification
would hopefully
* reduce the gag reflex among the l-k readers
* provide a forum where such activity could be indulged in comfort
and safety from mocking
* in cases inspiring Ingo's theory of spontaneous onset of sanity,
shield the emerging sentients from the prejudice created by their previous

Exhibit A:

Further examples can be trivially found in l-k archives and will be provided
on demand.
