Sarcastic answers may be appropriate for individuals (or not) but
they certainly are not appropriate for people acting in an official
capacity on the list.

The admins have stated that it's a lot of work to administer a
large, active and growing community. I think those of us that
have helped out with similar things are not surprised, but fair
enough: it _is_ a lot of work, and as the community grows it
will just be more work. The most helpful and well-meaning people
in the world will still have conflicts that need resolving, and
misunderstandings that need working out.

So how about those among the current admins who are sick
of it step down and we have some elections? To be followed by
an open, documented, public discussion of how the community
wishes to be governed?
