And when/if Jono comes back we can return the group to it's rightful owner. I have found a link that talks about yahoo groups and adopting ownerless abandoned groups.

I also think that once we change the new moderator, we make the new moderator have a second in command that has pretty much the same power. This way if the moderator is inactive for a while to clean up spammers and such, the second can take the responsibility.
