It is very nice to see people discussing about a situation which they do 
not know off because they have never confronted it. This will lead to 
some rosy coloured decisions based on what is possible in the west. Not 
on what is possible in the rest of the world. Also Gerard you are not a 
mod and still on the nl-mods list! Which is a very strange situation. 
These kind of discussions involve all of the nl. community. Andre Engels 
who is not on that list is interested in that discussion as well. But he 
is not able to contribute. Is this the way we go on nl: ? The mods get 
to decide our future for us?

And as you know I refuse to actively work on content. Only the bombings 
were an exception for me. But now if I have to go through so much 
trouble to do something, I am not a vandal remember, I might as well do
