Perhaps a clarification of "bozo-filter" wouldn't go astray here. Is a
bozo one who contributes time and energy to these initiatives even
though they can't realise an immediate financial gain (and therefore
can't justify the annual membership), or is a bozo one who is so
involved with the promulgation of their own software that they'll spend
the money on the off-chance that they'll be able to influence (sorry, I
mean contribute to) the process? In short, is the filter supposed to
exclude bozos, or facilitate their import? Is the code available? I can
think of many other uses for such a clever piece of work.
