I'd like to also add my voice to Simon in requesting some form of
moderation on this list. The conversations here have become very
hostile, and not what I expect from a professional environment.

Dear Board,

I'm writing to ask you to implement some form of moderation on this mailing list.

In the last week or so, we have seen participants abusing a [VOTE] thread and then a director 
further abusing it to chide the Board Chair for attempting to stop the abuse. We have seen 
over-frequent posting. We have seen content-free hostility expressed to long-established 
contributors. We've seen posts making no attempt to find positive content earlier in the 
conversation to amplify. While there have been one or two positive examples, this list has become 
a case study in a hostile online environment.

Specifically I would ask the Board chair and vice-chair to act to remedy this situation so that 
this list becomes a safe place to contribute, and one where it is safe to make imperfect 
contributions that can be collaboratively evolved open-source-style towards better contributions.

Many thanks!

Simon Phipps,  Trustee, The Document Foundation
