Thanks for sharing the info. It's nice to see some transparency (although Mr
Marples' attempts to be transparent shows the difficulty.)

Er ok, although that makes the above a bit less of a given ;) Wrt to
detractors, I have a feeling that many of those will be people who would be
affected by the work of the team, and their cohorts. In my opinion all mail
to proctors should be publically accessible. After all, it is sent in clear
text to an official complaints address.
