Lets not consider this as a rule =) Great people have added great stuff to 
Drupal without writing a single line of PHP, without commenting to a single 
issue. The moment we are going to set rules for people to discuss stuff, 
based on metrics such as committed patches, we have killed a successful open 
community. Isn't it "free as in freedom"?

If people discuss stuff on the mailinglist, such a discussion proves there is 
a certain itch. Wether or not that is your personal itch should not matter. 
Get yourself a mailreader that can ignore threads if it really annoys you, 
but please do not try to kill a discussion just because you don't like it, or 
because in your vision there are more important matters.
