>Another thing I notice in the logs is that several of those

>you feel pretty strong about something of yours that was removed.
>One last thing. I'm going through the membership and am

>a decent role for me to help Samuel with, since I feel I have a

>trustworthiness (all new members will not have editting privileges

>definitely recognize that you are a member in good standing and
>will re-enable your edit privileges (to be honest, I don't know
>who violated this that prompted Samuel to turn it off).
>I'm not going to post this to the board because I don't want a
>debate in that section.
