For some values of good, obviously.
My problem here is with the assertion that asking questions of
candidates for adminship is in some way bad. I really can't see how
that could be a valid viewpoint. One of the most pertinent questions
I've seen asked of an admin candidate recently was whether they saw
the role of admin more as that of policeman or janitor. Asking that
question is entirely consistent with adminship being no big deal, also
entirely consistent with knowing in advance to whom we are giving the
tools, and what they will do with them. For my money we don't need
policemen, but this is of course also just one person's view.
