With only two weeks left in Lent, I still haven't done enough
penance, so I figure I need to up the ante. :-)
I didn't see any response to my governance proposal <http://urlx.org/
microformats.org/56ce1>, so let me make a more specific request. I
for one fully supported the decision by the list administrators to
place Andy under moderation, given his behavior at the time. However,
Andy has since done a heroic job of making many useful contributions
despite the painful constraints he's been forced to live under; and,
as far as I know, he's avoiding commenting in an off-topic manner.
Therefore, I believe that the administrators ought to either:
a) remove his moderation constraint
b) publicly state why they are not removing it
I am all for strong leadership, but I also believe it must be
publicly accountable to avoid degenerating into tyranny.
Does anyone else agree?

P.S. Again, I apologize if this is off-topic for this list, but I
couldn't find any better place to air my concerns, which is why I
think we need a dedicated list for such matters
If anyone can suggest a better mechanism, please let me know.
