Agreed. The core problem is that moderators have to dig through tons of
spam/duplicates/cross-posting to do anything meaningful, and they are
resigning under that load. Address that core issue; shaming is not
going to help anyone.
Case in point --- I resubscribed to the press(at)postgresql(dot)org mailing
list to help assist people, but there is so much spam that my
spamasassin baynes filter now considers all press@ email to be spam so I
don't see it anymore. Hopefully if a legitimate press email arrives,
spamasassin will let it through, but I doubt it. So I tried to help,
but will not actually help much.
