Today, the Council of Zen Lists met to discuss the matter of Jarvis. The 
Council of Ten is composed of the Moderators and Owners of the Top Ten Zen 
lists all over the world. 

For about six months now, he has been moderator of the Zen Forum. 

His early days as Moderator featured numerous topical posts with peaceful and 
harmonious discussions. However, his performance has been slipping as of late. 
On more than one occasion, complaints were filed with the Jarvis has taken a 
harsh tone towards various other members.

So the Council convened to review the accusations against Jarvis, and this is 
what transpired:

First, Jarvis was summoned to the sanctuary of the Zen Council, located at the 
Shaolin Temple at an undisclosed location somewhere in the Far East.

The Delegates from the worldwide coalition of Zen Lists convened at the temple 

Jarvis was confronted, and the charges against him were read into the Official 
Blog of the Zen Forum. 

After the charges were read into the record, the judges were duly appointed, 
and a jury of monks was selected, and then the trial was convened. 

The Judgment was rendered. 

Four of the monks on the jury briefly discussed their decision with reporters 
from Hong Kong and Tokyo after the verdict was read. The Council had decided 
that Jarvis' actions could be tolerated. He was forthwith removed from his 
position as Moderator. 

Following the tradition of the Zen Forum list, the old moderator was given the 
option of committing seppuku or being executed. Jarvis chose the former option, 
sparing the Zen Council any negative publicity. 

Afterwards, the new candidates were reviewed:

Many qualified candidates were considered by the Council to replace Jarvis as 
the Moderator.

Finally, after lenghty discussion and deliberation, Kamandi-san was chosen to 
be the new Moderator of the Zen Forum! So now a new era begins!
