I agree that we need to be "courteous, respectful and promote debates
on ideas," but I disagree that we have to accept subtle opposites
because the topic might be touchy.

I'm somewhat confused about why there can't be a team of people who
moderate the mailing list. That solution seems effective for most
other Internet communities. Is it a question of manpower?

    Are you ready?
