Quite a while ago, I read somewhere about someone formulating a low that goes approximately like this:
If you post to a mailing list and you don't get a replay, you can't tell whether it is because your post was absolute rubbish, or whether it was because your post was totally and perfectly correct and right.
A while now I'm trying to track down the origin, and especially the name of the guy who coined this law, but until now I failed. I think I remember it came from the perl5 (or was it perl6) mailing list, but I might be wrong.
Who knows more?
