If your concern is in assessing whether or not a candidate is suitable to
administer and moderate the list, then it can be a factor to take into
account. I don't however agree that it should be a prerequesite. The
software is trivially easy to learn to use. I had no prior experience, and
I don't think I broke anything in the last two or so years of using it.
What is far more important, as far as I am concerned, is having people able
to judge how and when it is appropriate to intervene when threads
occasionally get unruly.
