Collaborative killfiling Re: META: Committee on Un-Extropian Activities

Well the mailing list seems to have been upgraded recently to mark messages
from non-members as such. Or perhaps when it says "Non-member submission"
it means a posting from someone not subscribed to the list. At any rate
here is a pretty simple proposal: put a little link at the end of each
message sent out to ExI members. They can click on it when they think a
thread has gone too far. If it gets enough votes the mailing list software
killfiles any more messages with that subject line for 10 days or something.
And it sends a message to the list saying so. Collaborative killfiling in
other words. Could be expanded later on to ban posters, provide ratings
in subject lines regarding postings and/or authors, etc. etc. I think for
a perl hacker with access to the ExI server the first stage of this could
be hacked together and tested in a weekend or less.

Are those Javien guys working on something like this?
