	Chuq is one of the core Mailman developers, so in a sense he 
"owns" this list more than just about anyone else, save Barry.  This 
is an open source project, and as one of the leaders of that project, 
Chuq is someone who gets to set policy on things related to the 
project, such as what kind of discussion is or is not appropriate on 
this list.

	You are correct.  Chuq has spoken.
