Mury, thank you for the thoughtful reply.

While I agree 100% that the mailing list can sometimes be hostile to some 
people who try to jump into the fray, I think you have missed an important 
point.  Joe Public Policy Subscriber is completely free to defend himself 
and say whatever he wants.  ARIN staff, on the other hand, are required to 
remain completely neutral and as such cannot get involved in PPML 

Nevertheless, I agree completely that it would be a good thing to have more 
than a handful of people participate on the list.  I will do what I can to 
encourage as much diverse participation as possible.
