Is it not the case that Mr. X made Mr.
Y an admin, either directly or via some chain of people that Mr. X
made admins? If so, this strikes me as entirely Mr. X's problem
for trusting people that he shouldn't.
There's no programmatic solution to this, it is a root of trust
and people problem.

It involves a Yahoo Group that was transferred. The Y!Group
has been deleted, and I don't have the original transfer
records anymore. This anonymized email lays things out:
writing to inform you that I understand that Mr X was removed
as list moderator by Mr Y.
Mr X was the original owner of the list, and now Mr Y has
removed Mr X as a list member.
I was removed some months back for [REDACTED and not
important]. I don't fully understand how Mr Y stole the list
from Mr X, probably because Mr Y was assisting with
moderating. I have known Mr X for nearly twenty years and I
know him to be a fair and honest person.
I need a policy for how to handle a supposed group
hijacking. Also, suggestions for features to make this more
difficult in the future would be appreciated.
We must work to make the Democratic Party the Marketplace of
Ideas not the Marketplace of Favors.
