Erik isn't listed in MAINTAINERS. You are.
Erik doesn't post much to lkml. You do.

Which is why we invent tools to work for us.

Humans tend to reuse and improve the tools that work best.
Your ARM based mail tool has caused some to do more work
than they would like, so they would like to use a better
tool.

You use high emotion words unnecessarily.

I believe it's about the very human desire to be lazy.

I believe very few care very much if vger.kernel.org or
arm.linux.org.uk is the list server. I don't. I just
want my email to get through.

And I still don't want to subscribe.

If you want to improve ARM, I think you and Erik should
improve your mail tool chest. Perhaps copy the spam filter
mechanisms used by vger. It's not a secret how it's done.

Reduce the probability of forwarding spam, open the list,
remove "(subscribers-only)" from the ARM MAINTAINERS entries
and I'd be good-to-go.

cheers, Joe
