1. all our chats happening in www space have to be minuted and made
    available

2. multiple chat spaces are not helping and blocking newbies

3. multiple chat spaces are not helping the chairs of this WG

4. most of the discussions happening in www-style are really
    spec-intepretation-related. That's where they should happen.
    CSS authors have a lot of fora for authoring stuff.


I guess my own opinion on traffic here can be summarized as follows:

A. don't pollute a thread if what you have to contribute to it is
    not important and does not bring more signal than noise

B. let long threads die if they don't show approach of consensus; it
    means that when a thread reaches 20+ messages without any visible
    compromise, it's probably good to NOT contribute and let the thread
    die

C. be precise, be concise, be polite, be factual

D. dream but dream only of things we can eventually do; things we
    can't do use our time in a pointless way.
