I'm sorry, but what's the point of bringing references to these forum 
discussions here? To show that discussion in one communication channel 
is similar to discussion here? It's easy to label everybody not agreeing 
with you as being influenced by propaganda or by trolls, or whatever - 
much easier than facing the arguments, right? If your accusation of 
authors of certain messages being bots becomes indefensible, you come up 
with a theory that the same nick might be shared by a bot and a real 
person - really? In your updated rules, you assign yourself the right to 
judge whether a lurker is a honest Pascal programmer, or a stranger with 
unclear intentions. Not by their actions, but simply due to the fact 
that you cannot track their history and they are not willing to answer 
your "entrance admitting questions" about their history. History of 
other people should be considered their private thing. Current actions 
is what counts. If these actions are clearly breaking the defined 
channel rules, it's appropriate to warn the person performing these 
actions and possibly ban him/her if the warning doesn't help. As simple 
as that.

Note that this is my last post directly participating in this
