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.

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.
