2. I, Alan McConnell, am the _administrator_, the guy who makes
sure the list is running smoothly. I am _not_ the Boss, the
Leader, the Chief Poster, or whatever. Linux-pe is a _discussion_

done, but in many years of _adminning_, NOT "leading", I've never
had to take any steps because of member silliness).
