I've every confidence in Steven's ability to moderate here, in his
energy, enthusiasm and contribution to the cause. We have a lot to be
grateful for.

Reading this thread, it does seem that editorial-style annotations on
postings are better handled separately. Spam-filtering, editorialising,
and leading/steering of discussions are separable tasks. Excerpting,
summarising and commenting on posts would perhaps work better in a blog,
rather than as part of the function of email filtering/forwarding.

Moving such activities to a blog could also serve to better spread ideas
and discussion beyond the confines of this list. If a more collective
voice is preferred, it wouldn't be too hard to set up a "Planet" blog
aggregator that included posts from any list participants.
