[LINK] Maintaining the link list

I'm OK with the three who have volunteered, heck I'd be happy to help but I think those three will be enough.

I have a couple of questions though.

I like the link list.  It is a high volume list and sometimes I have used it as a network diagnostic tool(!) but I like it's signal to noise ratio and it's relaxed attitude.  I like how it can be technical at times.  Tony has had a very, very light hand on the tiller but the list does have direction.   He hasn't seemed to do much steering in the last few years, I'm not sure whether it's because we have got less squabblesome or he got tired of it or a bit of both, none-the-less it is important and with a change in the moderator the list will change, just as it will change over time as people join and drift away. So my first question here is: will we have a change of policy?  What would the new three like to say about the directions of the list and handling of difficulties?

If this is going to be a democracy, it is a big change.  Are we going to take this democracy idea further and have terms?  Or just a one off to elect an oligarchy?
