Much as I appreciate the proposal, you won't be surprised to hear that I add
my vote to the 'noes'. The main reason is simply that we would hand victory
to the trolls (I half suspect _they_ like the idea). Other reasons include
the existence of separate Eliot lists (suppose someone interested in Eliot
wants to join a forum: what will he or she do?).
We've been through some pretty bad episodes over the years, and we did pull
through in the end. It would take much more than the handful of trolls we
now have to wreck the TSE list.
