No, we don't have moderators on freebsd-questions. We have a fantastic postmaster, who is single-handedly managing dozens of mailing lists, replying to posts about email problems for the entire *.FreeBSD.org domain, and making sure that we get as little spam as possible. That sort of service that is so good and so transparent that it is _very_ easy to forget how useful and thankless it is. We seem to be doing quite fine without moderation so far. We even advertise freebsd-questions as the main "contact point for questions about FreeBSD" on release notes, our web site, and on the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM images sold by FreeBSD distributors like FreeBSD-Mall. There are very good reasons to keep this status quo. I have yet to see *one* good reason for introducing moderation. > i found it really decent that people look out for others here! Yes, that's the spirit :-) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
