I remember when, during the various ukram RFD debates/screaming fits, that
various exalted ones from the Great And Good of uk.* made a lot of shrill,
highfalutin noise about how ulm was the “gold standard” for usenet
moderation, with its unimpeachable moderator practices. Oh, there’s egg on
their faces now and no mistake. If they had any sense of shame they’d
resign from the Committee in disgrace.

What's your problem with ulm moderation then, purely as a matter of interest?

You seem to inhabit a fantasy land. Who were the "great and the good"?
You probably envy them their power and influence, such as it was (and I
don't suppose it was much). I'm sure they are quite unaware of any egg
on their faces.

It’s all in the archives. What’s best is that these people *know* they’ve
got egg on their faces, after all they said about ulm and how the ulm mods
have since behaved. They must be fuming!

Nothing at all, it’s their group they can run it how they like as far as
I’m concerned.

It’s actually on topic for .management, tbh, Rog, as it concerns the
management of the hierarchy. It’s also on topic for .config too, now I
think about it, as it pertains to prior RFD group creation debates. Copied
in. Thanks for the heads up, mate!

Fuming? Don't you mean weeping and self-flagellating and praying for
forgiveness? In vain, because God's mercy is not limitless.

They made their beds, they’re going to have to lie in them. With egg on
their faces, to boot! Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
