You did a great job.

Thank you Yosem. I've always found your posts and moderation enlightening and constructive. As the new New York Times' Oscars ad says "Truth is Hard". You took it on, and helped it reach us.

I'm sad to learn of the end of the LiberationTech mail list, but will be happy to support it's liberation from here.

Dear List Subscribers,

As of today, I have ceased to be a moderator of all Stanford Liberationtech lists.

I feel like Superman when he loses his powers, except I hope the ending is more like this:

Just kidding. :)

On a more serious note, I want to thank all of you for a wonderful 9 years of discussions about Liberationtech issues.

I also want to thank you all for the arguing and jousting and name calling and... No, seriously, you were all great. I rarely had to step in to moderate.

Although I know some disagreed with my moderation style of letting every message through and only permanently moderating those who were extremely disruptive, I feel proud that the list always tried to ensure unfettered freedom of expression.

We now have approximately 4K members from around the world working to make the world a better place.

I am not leaving, so this is not goodbye. It's more like, "see you later." I'll now be a regular member and as such be able to participate much more freely in discussions than I was able to do when I was a moderator.

Take care, everyone, and keep up the good fight to protect pro-democracy activists fighting against authoritarian regimes.



Liberationtech is public & archives are searchable on Google. Violations of list guidelines will get you moderated: Unsubscribe, change to digest, or change password by emailing moderator at companys at<mailto:companys at>.
