The undefined off-list appeal process isn't supposed to achieve anything 
because it doesn't exist.  I just can't imagine that we want a list full 
of debate of what is or is not ontopic.

Feel free to publically correct me on this if otherwise, you know I have 
the deepest respect for your opinions.

 From memory, topic freezes have been very openly declared on-list, and 
James Camalyn worked very hard to get himself very publicly banned from 
this list, the only such person I can recall having managed it.
