They're completely bogus, as is the whole discussion.

Reigniting this discussion is a waste of time, we really have more
important matters at hand.  Just in case this isn't fully obvious
already: The admin crew is already severely freetime-challenged and any
and all attempts to increase the load (for doubtful benefit) are hereby
REJECTED with extreme prejudice.


Please don't answer, just close the topic.  There is so much to do, we
don't need another flamewar.
