Alan,

how is his GNOME "achievement" related to this list ?



By making himself "available" to this list with the justification as he did it,

he showed that he is a complete buffoon !

I say to him once again - get lost !



tough crowd!*

JB,
It indicates that he can do a good job of moderating a list. Think
of it as a job reference.

She is unable to figure out that the Neal Becker on this list is apparently
Neal D. Becker. Searching for that shows her hysteria is utterly ridiculous
as it appears everybody here had already figured out. Just because our Neal
Becker shares a name with an unsavory police officer (or two?) doesn't show
he's a bad person, too. (I suspect our Neal Becker is a great deal younger,
too.) Linda is apparently a very unstable character who needs to learn more
than a little bit of caution before she spouts off.

Mikkel,
you are very easy here to "set up" (because that's what it is) when you want to
drive away one mostly incomprehensible poster "Linda" and to compensate for it
with a "moderator" of GNOME fame (who posted here a couple of times, after which
I thought he was on drugs or not entirely alert, which makes him qualified ...).
Have you lost your mind here ?
JB

Can we please focus on technical user help rather than attacking other
list members? Thanks in advance.

You missed the point. Weather moderating this list is a desirable
option or not does not affect how well he does as a moderator. Your
comment did not address the question of weather this list needs to
be moderated, it only addressed his qualifications, and the
relevance to this list.

Now, as far as hiving lost my mind, no I have not. I have it backed
up around here somewhere. :-)

I think this list should not be moderated at all because as I already said it
can be easily manipulated into killing it.
It is like 19 Arabs and a camel (think of it as "Linda") used as a pretext for
mass genitals screening and pad-downs :-)

I am for restoring "Linda" to her full list membership, w/o moderation.
