Re: Welcome to the latest members (we're at 86 now)
I, for one, am willing to trust in Carlos's discretion. On a very small scale, I know how to manage a group. I have wanted to step down, but I'm told that my discretion help keeps everyone on track. If I can do that, I feel very confident that Carlos can.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I admire the fact that you created a new list. I am a pro lurker so I have more experience with reading than responding so have a good idea of how you handle things. I just hope that when it comes time to enforce some sort of rule that it is handled in a way that doesn't pulsate with a vibe of "1984" or make me feel like I am in school again and someone was caught talking during class. I understand there needs to be rules, but how they are enforced is handled can piss off people. I'm not talking about those that can find anything in almost everything to get mad about, I'm sure people understand what I'm saying there. Speaking from experience it can be tough going from a peon position to one of management and not look like you are being a bully or betraying the people who think of you as a friend. I hope that line isn't too hard to achieve here. Moderating anything can be hard, dealing with a bunch of different people with different ideas about how things should be and not looking like a total dictator or asshole can be hard too.
