Finland finished on the bronze, behind Denmark and New Zealand?!!!

The "fix is in"!!!

On the surface this is a very frivolous post. Funnily enough I have
a serious point I have been nursing along for a while. Any
list moderators listening? There are times when the mailing
list itself can be a source of infighting and internal politics. I submit
this is not one of them, and as such, I think modified rules to the
soft moderation rules should be adopted. Blatant trolling should
get a "one strike and you are on hard moderation" response,
and monthly moderation limits should be lifted entirely. We really
are on war footing. Not bean-bags at 50 yards footing. We need
to sort things out, and more talk is a good thing, not a bad thing.
