I'm proposing Gordon's law, somewhat akin to Godwin's:
As a discussion in the London.pm list grows longer, the probability of
it turning into a meta-discussion of what is (not) an acceptable posting
It's great that we're all so keen not to put off newbies, not to allow
time-wasting, etc, but my word is this list self-conscious!
