Thanks for asking. I mean you or Dottie could do it anyway without
fearing that I'd sue you. But that's not the point - which is why I am
not continuing the guidelines here and doing so elsewhere. The reason
is that I am in strong disagreement with certain aspects of this list
and these aspects would have to change before I gave permission to
publish the translations here, or did it myself. They are:
1. That the moderators be identified by their real names. (rank and
serial numbers not necessary), so they take responsibility for their
actions, especially when banning people.
2. That they give the real reasons, rather than "meddling in list

they aren't a part of it?
4. That posts not be deleted from the list and archives without good
reason and notification. (One of mine was recently, as this one may
And yes, I am aware that I am violating the rule by writing this.
