[Kmymoney-devel] Different messages between KDE Bug Tracking System and KMyMoney-devel list ???

To clarify a bit, there is a moderation system. Those who are
subscribed to the list do not go through it. Messages from outside the
list have to be manually approved. That's why we don't get spam on the
list, which believe me, amounts to 10-20 messages a day (common spam
is automatically filtered, up to a certain point).

The manual approval can be done by any of the moderators, but I'm the
main one and it takes a measurable amount of my time, to filter
dubious messages.
I can only recall a couple of messages that didn't go through due to
prophane language and in such cases we sent a mail directly to the
recipient with a request to calm down and write again.

I have the impression that we are very open about discussions, even
when we disagree with the points of view. We may be harsh on our
arguments, but that's due to the passion we put in our work here. Even
then, an alternative way is offered to appeal, and each developer has
seen his opinion reverted because consensus was against him. I view
this as a symptom of a healthy community.

It is with sadness that I read that someone can think we censor
messages, despite multiple cases as evidence to the contrary, as
explained above.
