Newbie (to the CG) meta question: this sounds like an actual
substantive back-forth topical discussion about domain names and
credibility inferencing (rather than about "updates to tomorrow's
agenda"); what is the cultural norm for this community / mailing list
for forking new topics from existing email threads/subjects?

Since this list is public anyway, has there been any
consideration/discussion for using the CG's apparent GitHub for splitting-off specific
topical discussions like that from emails etc.?
