No. It's difficult enough to find competent volunteer help for an
organization like BayPIGgies. IMHO public calls for removal,
especially from a vocal minority, just make it less likely that anyone
will step forward.

FWIW, I have seen him at several BayPIGgies meetings.

Precisely the opposite -- it was default mailman behavior, and Aahz as
moderator is about as far from novice as anyone I know (except maybe
John Levine, comp.compilers moderator).
Suggestion to Russell W., if you should see this message: if you do
add a new email list to a message, SAY SO IN THE BODY of the message.
People tend not to notice cc's -- in general, not to read any headers
except From and Subject. I personally don't think announcement-style
crossposting is such a problem, as long is it is made noticeably
explicit in the message body. And I'd like to hear Brett's talk, if it
does end up organizing itself :-)
