I can live with listadmins

As for policies, I have none.  I have my hands on root.  Don't fuck with
me.  That is the policy.  As someone who has been locked out of numerous
mailing lists, I'm happy to report I haven't felt compelled to do that.
 Usually when I'm pissed I'm very good at just telling you but I don't
see it as my job to control the speech of others on the list, or any
other list for that matter.

People have walked off the list because of my refusal to listadmin ...
which is ok.  When it is busy, which is not all the time, I hope people
with strong personalities feel comfortable that they will not be cut
off.  I don't care about offtopic spew.
