I can't help taking the longer view, and thinking it's a self-limiting
problem:  People who make goofy yet complicated, monomaniacal legal
claims generally make clear that they partake of the loon nature pretty
quickly.  It's also rare for license-discuss to have three ones active
simultaneously.  Usually, they burn out after about a month.

It's possible that I'm a bit soft on tireless Net cranks.  They can be
fun in a "Hail Eris!  All hail Discordia!" sort of way.
