As you come up with it again...

This is rather annoying. Please take my me out of the list - i'm not 
going to support such 'policy' votings.

In a prior post i was citing from http://zope.org/Help/:

I think this a reasonable policy for user contributed content.
Maybe you got that wrong and took it for a vote.

"Zope Exits" might be a not-so-good idea altogether. Looking at 
http://python.org, the exits are labled 'Community' - which is just what 
i expect from a community website pointing me to related information.
