It is hypocritical to allow and approve threads and posts that
start, continue, and subthread such discussions per charter,
then censor others that do the same thing, especially so
when exacted upon those simply countering other posters
thoughts and data that were so approved. See archives
below.

"Cryptography" is a... mailing list devoted to cryptographic
technology and its *political impact*. Occasionally... more
generally... *security and privacy technology* and its *impact*
"On topic" discussion includes technical aspects of cryptosystems,
*social repercussions of cryptosystems*, and the *politics* of
cryptography such as export controls or *laws*

If you want to censor and pare the list down to some purer
narrower form of "cryptography tech" talk only, which would surely
be a fine resource, feel free, there's a long way to go there...
starting with the charter and all the other posters equally.

Lots of off topic material here...

Note there also no *cryptography* or "security" or "privacy"
of TLS over, or PKI signatures present on, the archive files either.
