Subject: Re: [oiic-formation-discuss] Can we turn on list moderation now?


I've been patiently waiting for sanity to prevail before digesting the archives and updating the site(s), but it seems we'll run out of days before this happens.

2:25 PM -- Thomas Zander, OASIS member and member of the ODF TC makes his first post to this discussion list.


4:42 PM -- Paul "Marbux" Merrell attacks Thomas personally, questioning his motivation and his character, while throwing random, off-topic accusations.  I'd also question whether his repeated statements about "breaking monopolies" and similar topics risks running afoul of OASIS anti-trust policy.


This list is failing its intended purpose if a new participant receives personal attacks like this within 2 hours of his first post.  This is OASIS, not alt.talk.conspiracy.ufo.

Is there something that can be done about this?  After repeated warnings, I see no change in Mr. Merrell's behavior.  

I believe the pace of traffic has slowed to the level where moderation would not be onerous.
