Maybe there should be some kind of discriminator though.  In order to be
excluded from the WJM-free list, you first have to spend 10+ hours a
week working on cygwin and 2-5 hours a week working on,
updating software, improving spam filters, implementing virus blocks,
improving performance, and responding to "I try unsubscribe, you suck,
free software suks" and the "my mail bounce.  I not spammer." messages.
And, you have to be in the top twenty posters for sending email to lists, answering the majority of email with helpful

You should also support 10+ cygwin packages, monitor the gcc, gdb,
binutils, and crossgcc mailing lists for windows problems and monitor
the majority of other lists for spam or mailing list
administrative problems.

Oh, and you'll also need a couple of groupies who respond with over the
top and inappropriate references to your psychology and upbringing
whenever they see an opening to give vent to their repetitive

Anyone who did all of those things would clearly be a terrible person
and you should avoid any and all contact with them.  So, I think your
list idea is a good one but I'd make sure that only the truly deserving
were excluded from it.  You are a nice guy who provides a valuable
service to cygwin but, I'm sorry, I just don't think you're evil enough
to qualify.
