-1.  We are not LKML.

Brainstorming and discussion of topics relevant to llvm is certainly 
welcome on list.  There's been a number of examples of this over the 
years, several of which I've been a part of, and several of which I've 
learned quite a bit from.

However, if you want to be crass and insulting in your crazy discussion, 
please do that in private conversation or elsewhere. (Only my view, not 
a community consensus, etc..)
