These stats are too susceptible to flames and disdain already. I had to
change some strings to prevent the phrase "Blacklist of quoters" from
appearing. In another newsgroup (SuSE), I needed to manually remove trolls
from the list. Otherwise, the stats are said to encourage unwanted
participants. Any intervention seems to be undesirable, let alone annotation
which binds stereotypes to about half of the people in /C.O.L.A./
