Hi Ernie,
Other than this last event the list has been well run by Russ and very polite the short period I've been here.  I was pretty surprised that it happened.  The code of conduct seems like a reasonable set of rules to move forward with and put all this behind us.  
Good luck and thanks for taking on your new position.  Being a moderator is often a tough job.

Effective immediately, I am the new moderator of License Discuss (as nominally expressed in the charter):

I thank Russ for all his hard work over the years, and trust that this new arrangement will allow him to better focus his efforts on license-review.

I agree that we all have some work to do in order to better support the new direction, and welcome other suggestions you may have. I am already in discussion with Chris about his suspension, to determine the best way for all of us to move forward.
