Hi, Mark,

I could not have "misinterpreted" your statement, because I did not 
interpret anything you said.  I merely made my own point.  I am not sure 
what the "community" versus "mob rule" is all about in your mind, so I 
won't guess.  I do think that commons has a particular MISSION to serve 
jakarta GENERALLY in way that OTHER "non-commons" applications do not.  
THAT was the point.  I too am, you might guess, totally against "mod 
rule".  I have never seen it, but it seems like a bad idea.  I don't 
even like group-rule, much less mobs, or even organized crime.  I am not 
sure what you were thinking, but it has the advantage of a lot of drama 
that kind of livens up the discussion.  Anyway, I was trying to make a 
positive point and was not that interested in what you in particular 
were saying.
