You are right. I am not cut out for removing things on the ground of just my
opinion. I have the awful habitude to consult people If I am part of a
collective elected corp and not a Sadan Huseim. Also I have the awful attitude
not to become scandalized for jokes, dirty or not, off topic issues, etc.  But
nevertheles you should take into account that other people here share my view. I
do not know how much people, but at least enough to get me elected. For the same
token you cannot consider my nomination as a mistake: you cannot judge so
lightly what people want as moderator. At least is a matter of tastes. What was
a mistake was for me to accept it, even knowing in advance that sooner or later
I was going to become entagled with Bruce in one issue or another.
Well, this is past history. I think that without me you will do, with Bruce, a
better job. I hope it will be so.
