Good luck with that.
I agree. The problem will just flood into the new mailing list if
everybody moved over to that. The problem with the "me too's", off-topic
posts, rants, etc., isn't precipitated by the name of the mailing list.
It's the users that are subscribed to the list. So the protuberant issue
here is regarding moderation; the new mailing list would be moderated
differently because it technically would have new rules and/or more
heavily enforced ones than those found here, whereas adding new rules or
enforcing old ones to this age-old list could/would upset users. Not a
bad tactic, but read between the lines. The goal seems to be to shut
down this list completely at some point, but so far I haven't seen one
email sent on the new opensuse-support list and I don't think this whole
idea is going to pan out.
If there are no subscribers there, the reasoning behind subscribing to
the new list is fairly weak, and the community thus far seems to not be
keen on the idea, then I see no reason to subscribe to the new list. So
to recap, the issue at hand is moderation and user behaviour.
