      Thanks Clint. Nice try, but I'm a mortal too. :-)

      I have no use for "Scrum 2.0" types of arguments, either. You're
      right, it's a thin line, but it's usually a safer route to err on the
      side of too much information. I agree, 40 messages is a bit much
      (particularly since the thread was spawned by someone who apparently
      posted on the wrong list in the first place).

      It's easy to ignore a thread. It's also possible for moderators to
      gently promote wrapping up a thread without being heavy-handed.
      Scaring off the thinkers can relegate a list to not much more value
      than a FAQ.
