surely if I want to answer many emails.
even more if the theme is an urgent one to be treated.

To be truly honest, It is quite rare to me to post more than once a day.
But that is an option I do not want to lose.


My main point is that to maintain a well working communication channel
we need some self-governance. This would not be easy - as self
governance requires first of all defining community borders - and that
will be difficult here. But we are a political movement - this kind of
problems should not scare us - but rather excite us to check our
policy drafting skills.

I agree on self gobernance. I just do not want to have to lose some right
because there are trolls or could be any troll in the list.

Being someone in politics means we should learn how to deal with people
much more complicated than list trolls. Leaving a mailing list just because
there are some trolls, means that those person wont be there when big
problems will arise.
