Subject RE: Establish some rules of conduct

If this is a serious concern, it will be necessary to take any proposal and its discussion
to the ooo-dev list, where project deliberations are documented.  It might be easier to publish
a monthly FAQ about how the list works and what the guidelines are, rather than having enforced

As a moderator, I am uncomfortable with my duties being expanded to monitoring behavior around
hot-button situations.  I would not want to act without a complaint being copied to ooo-users-owner@  Unilateral action is not something I am willing to accept an accountability

FYI: There is a moderator procedure for unsubscribing an user (useful when someone gets stuck
and are unsuccessful at unsubscribing themselves).  There is no procedure for banning someone
from subscribing.  Subscription requests are not moderated.  Any changes would require support
from ASF Infrastructure; consideration of ASF policy is probably required as well.

As true as this statement is, it never happens.  Someone always feels 
compelled to add his own indignation or support.  A set of rules should 
be posted and the list moderators should enforce them.
