I think "no support" may be a bit overreaching, but nevertheless, I
could support administrative action if and only if the rules are put in
writing someplace and said user(s) breach them again. Maybe they are --
I did a quick search and couldn't quite find any.
Punishing someone because a subset (even a large subset) of the list has
sent emails that disagree with a particular user's actions doesn't seem
right, to me at least. A bit too much like witch burning for my
comfort. The only clean way to do it is have a set of rules setup by
the administration and to have the administration take action on clear
breaches of those rules.
Just my 2c though. Maybe people prefer a more "organic" approach to
rules and enforcement.
