I expect there are hundreds of other discussion forums whose charters
and processes are indeed praiseworthy. To forestall a combinatorial
explosion of admirable attributes, let me draw the attention of those
who are interested to the following analysis of the diverse practices
of mailing list moderation:

Berge, Z.L. & Collins, M.P. (2000). Perceptions of e-moderators about
their roles and functions in moderating electronic mailing lists.
Distance Education: An International Journal, 21(1), 81-100.

Given the range of practices represented above and the result of the
recent vote, I propose that the status quo is admirable position to
maintain. (Moderation-wise, not OA-wise!)
