Isn't what Marc just proposed, to stop forwarding traffic into that
stolen namespace, exactly the right thing?

I agree with Marc. It was time to stop this nonsense debate and make
decisions. However unpopular these decisions might be to the fistfull of
contributors that use newsgroups, the way major members of the
PostgreSQL community are treated here does IMHO more harm to the project
than any single NSP carrying any of there groups is worth.
