Fair enough. My comment was meant to rather point out that we don't have

Thanks for the input, folks.
So, it looks as though there's a preference for keeping it off-list, at
least until a moderation decision is made, and possibly thereafter too. I
shall proceed in that way.
For the record, following Dariusz's remark, I will point out that that is
*not* how we do it
Generally, it is better to discuss it privately with the list admins. This
prevents the worst side of mailing lists: a one-sided dogpile on an
individual, who, disruptive or not, should get a fair hearing by the
person(s) whose job it is to moderate.

I was on a very active music mailing list for over 10 years and I was
grateful it was not moderated. Moderation can inhibit discussion, even when
there are disruptors, and it also requires moderators donate a lot of
volunteer hours. Which I think within the Wikimedia family community is

On behalf of the Affiliations Committee, I am glad to announce the

As Christophe mentioned, BGC has discussed Board composition issue and

If you have relevant arguments and think that it would make sense for other
people to be
Should the very first step be contacting the person involved? Maybe even if
this last attempt of private moderation fails, you can both agree that
discussing in public about the problem is no problem for him/her.

Maybe the best model would be such:
#1 A person willing to switch on moderation on someone contact an admin -
good reasons for moderation is required
#2 If admin decides not to moderate - inform proponent about it. End of
#3 If admin decides to moderate - inform about this both proponent
A meta-question: I am wondering whether, if one thinks a user on this list
should be moderated, it is better to discuss it privately with the list
admins (who, if convinced, could announce the moderation publicly, or not),
or publicly on this list (explicitly inviting more opinions, being

Whether it goes on the death or incapacity of the founder or earlier is a
valid question for the board and the community. I'm not convinced that an
elections committee should be deciding which posts to elect, and even if
Maybe so, but that is your opinion and is not necessarily shared by others.
I will second Pine's request.

I agree with you that there are many important issues, and as you mentioned
one of them is the quality of our products and services. However, I am
keenly aware of governance issues at WMF and how they affect the rest of
the ecosystem. WMF is a single point of failure (an issue which I
