I fully support the way this list is run and moderated. It provides invaluable and timely information on issues of importance and topicality.

It's far and away the best moderated list of which I am a member.

I fully support you as moderator of the AmSci OA list. The job of a moderator
is to censor. There is no other word to describe the job you are asked to do.
Censorship is not always a bad thing. You have disagreed with me a number of
times on the focus of the list and the movement but allowed those postings
through while posting your disagreement openly. Keeping off-topic and
insulting material off the list is exactly what your job as moderator entails
and you retain my confidence.
