I think the problem with this mailing list is that it is populated by
system administrators with a very confined view of what UCE is (UCE = more
work for them) and what should be done with it (it should be abolished).
We can rant on about how terrible UCE is all we want here in our closed
little forum and it won't mean a thing in the end because noone listens
to fanatics. If, however, we agree that UCE has a right to exist, we might
get an opportunity to give our opinion on *how* it should exist and that
is better than being ignored because of lack of ability to compromise
and/or tunnel-vision. Nothing is completely black and white. Most UCE is
clearly worthy of contempt but it is, like Piet says, wrong to think
there's only one kind or that noone in the world wants it. We're clearly
not fit to represent the majority of the population here.
