I deleted my rant form my message so that you wouldn't have to go through
the effort of spelling out your position. I understand it quite well, even

But will the issue at hand (arbitrary text substitutions) actually help
this? Will anything except for a vigilant owner and true moderation
actually protect you from a list wrecker?
