[Gatesedge] Proposal to the List

I like this idea. It's done on many of the lists I subscribe to and I have
not noticed any delay in service nor have I heard anyone who is not
subscribed complaining that their "legitimate" posts were overly delayed.
My concern is what happens if/when the list moderator (yourself or whoever
takes it from you) goes out of town for a weekend/week/month etc. What
contingency plans do you have for this? Do you have a deputy who can
moderate in your place? I would volunteer to do this but you would have to
train me. I would love to learn.
Dear God, Help me to be the person
my dog thinks I am. Amen
