Wow, I did not get any of that at all
from Chris' email. Discussing how GMF works is objectively
off-topic for beta, which is to discuss features for groups.io.

“...wildly off - topic for beta”. Ahhh, the not-so-hidden sneer
of the superior to the inferior. The polite way to remind someone
to not forget their “place" in the overall scheme of things and
demand “rights” to speak as necessary to the intended purpose.
When the “guardians” within GMF act as advocates or
so as discourage empirical discussion, who guards the
guardians”? Only [beta] and Groups.io
can intervene when and if
that becomes necessary. Do we, mere owners, REALLY need ask for
that to be a [beta] hashtag? If so, consider that done right
now by me.
We are reminded again and again that GMF is “peer
to peer” and not part of Groups.io
. It doesn’t always
exhibit that “floor and feel”. “Position posts” by a
moderator or founder are not inherently more credible.
No one has proposed moderators are not necessary.
They need to remember their function is that of police, not
judges. They should NOT intimidate verbally nor act with
conspicuous bias. In “peer to peer” debate they should leave
their “official function and uniform” at the door and come in
as intellectually naked as the rest of us. ;<)

The GMF is supposed to be a place
for Owners to go to seek help. <snip>
Supposed to be Owners helping Owners, but rarely is
a question answered by someone other than a
Although this is wildly off - topic for beta one
reason is that many Group Owners on GMF only go there
to pose a question and look at the responses; they don't
go there to try to help others
and generally see what is going on. They are only
interested in their own problems and not anyone
Take away the moderators and see what happens...
