Well, I would say these discussion at some points go quite close to spam. But mails can easily be deleted, you do not have to read them all.

On the other hand these reflectors are easy way to get the flow of thoughts running. Considering SAC we OH's have done it many times in CCF-r. A lot of discussions, not so much actions. Anyway I think it is important, not only the results but the process itself. 

Normal phenomenon is that some people have lower threshold of release (like me and Mats close to zero) and are more active in discussion. So this is not totally democratic platform in practice. And most of the contesters are at least following the reflectors. This is the case for OH and SM, I don't really know about LA or OZ. Probably they are excluded from this. How could we get them in?

Some opinions irritate, some make you laugh. All in all: it's feeding the brain. In the end of the day something good might come out. Hopefully.

So let the discussion flow. There will be other 11 months mostly free of SAC issues on reflectors.
