Yes well this is what happens when you encourage everyone to play the
part of victim. Its a larger problem and not one that is specific for
Boost to solve.

I agree. I think the mailing-list format is an anachronism. I would
like to rebrand Boost and the website to be a more comprehensive
social media site with an emphasis on C++. Instead of a mailing list,
it should have a forum. And reviews would take place there. For
example each reviewed library would be its own sub-forum to hold the
review (and subsequent discussion and support if the library is
accepted), using a threaded discussion format.
