Right.  Someone in the community should set up a suitable list or forum,
identical in charter but with weaker restrictions on "unconstructive"
discussion.  It could even be called Mail Fission.  Volunteers?  I could
do it if no one else wants to.  Or does such a venue already exist?

We'll see how many people join.  If very many people do, the board may
be persuaded to change the policy; if not, that would suggest that the
current policy is acceptable to the community at large.
