    Could we get back to talking about default ignorables?

    William, this thread (in spite of the subject line) had been about encoding
    of mathematical notation. This seems like an unabashed attempt to divert
    people to looking at your PUA usage, once again. I think you've made your
    attempt to generate interest here in your ideas for multimedia display and
    DVB, and nobody has indicated interest in pursueing the topic here. In
    spite of the fact that it involves Unicode codepoints, it is **very much
    off topic**, and while Sarasvati has allowed discussion to be free-ranging,
    there is a point at which the tolerance of members has been exceeded. It
    would not surprise me if several members of this list have already set up
    rules to treat posts to this list originating from you as "default
    ignorable", so to speak, just moving them into the trash. If you continue
    to bring up discussion on DVB here, I will soon be tempted to set up such a
    rule. Not that I don't welcome you're input in general, but your repeated
    posts on certain topics are becoming like smoke in the eyes.

    Please take these matters there and leave them there.
