I suggest that since Gerry was the first to volunteer, she
should open a new list and get registered as its owner and moderator. Then she
can appoint one or two reserve moderators. I don't mind being one of them as
long as Gerry is prepared to take care of the routine business most of the
time. Then the inauguration of a new forum should be announced on Nostratic
and all the Nostratic members should be invited to join it -- excluding
"idmpost34" or any other spammers, of course.
My policy on Cybalist is
to moderate any new members until I have a chance to see that they know how to
behave. Spammers are thrown off the list at once. I occasionally have to
discipline people who violate standard netiquette, but I prefer to do that
off-list. I'd set the status of all the Nostratic members who move to the new
list to "Can post without moderation", and _then_ (after making sure that Mr.
idmpost34 & al. are not aboard) select the setting "New members are
moderated" in the list properties.
