Not that I want to put on a censor hat, far from it :-). But this is
still an 'official' list. It's not reddit or anything like that. I think
it is necessary for the user to know what to expect here and what not to
expect. And I think there is a border between offtopic and explicitly
discussing extending Org beyond its natural limits or even flirting with
applications and software that do not respect user freedom and are
outside of GNU ethics and philosophy. And for the record, I am not
talking about Ihor's specific proposals in this thread --- which, as I
have already said, seems to me to be a commendable conciliatory effort,
although I do not share some points--- but rather from the previous
debate on the "new" name of the Org syntax, and other such things. I
think things like the 'orgdown' topic, which are not productive here,
should have their own place and forums outside here.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
