Understandable, but sad. When new people join a discussion like that
they often have a lot of questions which need answering as well as new
ideas which need consideration, and these contribute to a temporary high
volume of traffic. In retrospect it might have been better to take some
of this off list. But if this means that the older participants who
already understand the issues are scared away, the cause of
standardisation is not advanced. Meanwhile I would judge that the
current spate of high traffic has almost run its course, and things will
quieten down over the next couple of days.
We need to work towards some real proposals for improving Hebrew
support, not just chat. But who is going to know about these proposals
and assess them if they are not on the Hebrew list, and if discussion of
Hebrew is not allowed on the main list?
