Dear Pluggies,

We are all aware of the mailing list issues and various threads about the same.

After going through them and considering list-members reactions, there
were lot of discussions off-list with moderators and many others about
the issues. Finally, the time has come to change things.

This is the proposal for change from the current state of the list.
Please do send your comments, suggestions.

1. All the users moderation flag (that is currently set) to be
removed. Any new member joining the list will not get a moderation
flag set.

2. All the current filters to be removed and started from scratch. Let
us use the list of filters from Arun Khan's mail to start of the new
filters list.

3. Any change (add/delete/modify) of filter and add/remove moderation
flag for a list member and removing of any list member is to be done
by voting. 15 votes in favour of the proposal required for approval.
(eg. 20 votes in favour and 5 negative votes is OK)

4. There will be moderator/s but they will act only once in a week.
This is considering that there will be hardly anything in moderation
there will be less filters applicable. Moderators identities will not
be disclosed.

5. It is the responsibility of the list members to maintain the list
active, vibrant and useful. If they feel that some member or post (top
posting to be allowed or not?) is not appropriate, they should propose
action against it and that will also be passed through voting.

6. Considering the above, it will be decided on the list itself if the
list is to be declared moderated or un-moderated.

7. All these decisions will be posted on the PLUG website and will be
updated according to the decisions on the list.

RFC remains open till 31 Jan 2013, during which all the initial
filters, moderation methods etc will be crystalised.
After that, from Feb 1, 2013, the decisions will be implemented.

Please start different thread for suggesting/approving/voting for
filters or other actions. Currently, all these postings will also
undergo current filter rules and moderation. Moderators will ensure
that there is minimal delay in responding to these mails.

Please comment/suggest on these points and/or any other things if you
have in mind.

Thanks and regards,
