[New-imc] Proposal: use of list

There are a few assumptions in Jimdog's email which have left me feeling uneasy:-
a.) He defines the recent emails as "off-putting", however this is his subjective experience, and will not necessarily be shared with others, who may well have found the emails informative or interesting.
b.) He claims they are "distracting for those trying to work". Given that the emails are a direct response to questions asked by someone in relation to an IMC application, I would definitely define them as work. I understand that it is the preferred method for all communications to be carried out by a liaison, however I think the benefit of Chris replying directly on this occasion was that a lot of problems were cleared up very quickly.
c.) Jimdog has not disclosed his ongoing feud with Chris to the new IMC list.
In light of this, I would like to make an alternative proposal:-
i.) If a collective member who is not the liaison sends emails to the new IMC list, they should be reminded that communications should be carried out by their collective's liaison.
ii.) The new IMC group makes efforts to find a liaison ASAP for those applicants currently without one.
This is a less draconian approach, and I am sure that collective members will take heed to this. The added benefit of my approach is that collective members who have subscribed can continue to easily follow the developments in new IMC process, thus aiding the transparency of the proceedings. I would encourage others to speak up and block Jimdog's proposals if they also think that a more conciliatory than punitive approach is advisable.
