Jason and Tristan:

If the moderation's team isn't regularly checking that the
proto-moderation system is working correctly, you are making your own
argument as to why moderated proposal discussion is a bad idea.

It's long past time to drop news.groups.proposals and direct that RFD
followups all be made to news.groups. Rmgroup this unwanted newsgroup.
