Subject: [Foundation-l] Greg Kohs and Peter Damian

Hi guys,

After extensive discussion among the list administrators, we've
enacted, for the first time, a permanent ban of a mailing list member.
Greg Kohs is no longer welcome to participate on Foundation-l.

Peter Damian has also been moderated once again, and will remain on
moderation for the indefinite future.


You guys really need to get out of the echo chamber.  You don't even bother to 
try and articulate what you are trying to accomplish with moderation any more.  
Obviously everyone involved has written Greg Kohs off as inherently evil, so I 
won't waste my time with nuance on that subject.   But you might want to 
actually define your goalposts to prevent the predictable dramafest that will 
occur in the near future when someone who has not been labeled as evil begins 
grappling with them.  The foundation-l forum obviously has a broader population 
than wherever the adminstrators extensively discuss these things and none are 
mind readers.
