In that case, I sure would have appreciated more input from you when the 
definition was being discussed. Was there any reason you didn't provide some 
help to come up with something better than the 10 year rule if you didn't 
care that much for it? Help from you would have been awesome! But I am glad 
to hear that yet another person finds the 10 year rule problematic.

So your reason for unsubbing would be because you don't understand what this 
list is talking about? Sure, there's some argument about the finer details 
and probably the definition needs tweaking. But I seriously doubt that 
people (and you) honestly don't know what this list is about. I'm sure I and 
others on the list would like to get your help in the definition instead of 
you just saying "I don't understand it, so I'm leaving".
