I never said that you did. I said you agree there is an implicit
hierarchy, and you did.

Fine, object, but I still feel that elite is accurate. Perhaps you see
it as offensive etc but only certain people can write code or have
access to install or impliment code - that is fact. Elite may be a
loaded term - but lots of people feel that you be the case.

When people get of their arses to do admin, that is taking control, it
is not necessarily a bad thing. What is a bad thing is that people who
have in the past done admin have said they can no longer be bothered
due to the unsupportive environment they find on the lists etc.

The people standing in the way are those who who for the last two
years have discouraged anyone else from sorting it out by repeating
the mantra that MIR is perfect for the job and that perhaps they'll
get round to it themselves. Setting up an agregation site using
anything other than MIR isn't rocket science - how comes it's taken so
long? And when it is done - how long will it take to get the imc uk
front page redirected to it? Time will tell.
> Quit stirring the shit, please. I'm sick to the back teeth of these lies and attacks on the collective.
Stop being so defensive. This isn't shit stiring. I was asked a
question and I replied. I normally wouldn't bother as I know how it
always turns out but I am keen that this move towards agregation moves
forward quickly. The shrinking IMC UK 'collective' gets increasingly
defensive about these things as more and more people give up in
dispair. Lets please do something to fix it before it is too late.
