Its not your fault I resigned. If I had been the only person
controlling link, or if the other two Amigos wanted to run it according
to the standards I think are appropriate, I wouldn't have resigned.
Its a matter of debate whether I was right to expect of you and all
other list members a higher standard than has been expected in the past,
regarding decorum (e.g. not trying to discourage others from
contributing to a discussion) and regarding accompanying strong opinions
with supporting arguments.
So its a matter of debate whether I was right to set new standards or
whether you were right to reject them.
I think you were mistaken, but it all comes down to personal choices
about what standards should prevail and how to set standards and
moderation responses in order to guard against a potentially vast array
I found that my idea of how to run the list was not fully supported by
Ivan - and we haven't heard from Martin. That's why I resigned.
It was my mistake to underestimate the upset my actions would cause. My
resignation is not a reflection on you or your actions.
Nor does my resignation constitute any criticism of Ivan or Martin.
They have their own ideas and while mine are different, I am not trying
to cajole them into adopting my approach. If they can run Link with
minimal moderation, that's great.
I think their ability to do so will depend entirely on how much
"disruption" (however defined, by them or by unhappy list members) they
have to deal with.
