We (the CC) are under no obligation to accept or comply with any
'offer' you may have made.

The bare fact of the matter is that over the last few days the CC has
received multiple complaints about the behaviour of specific
individuals on this list. We don't get that very often, and certainly
not from multiple sources about the same individuals. If this was the
forums or IRC those individuals probably have been
warned/kicked/banned by now. The fact that you haven't isn't because
the tools aren't in place to do it, or because nobody wants to do it,
it's simply because we've not been placed in this position before.

In all fairness this isn't about you, this isn't your list. This is a
common list for members of the Ubuntu community, and others to use for
the purposes of getting support. It's not your personal soapbox to
vent how unfair the world is. It's a service provided by the Ubuntu
project - Canonical specifically - and we ask that people respect that
service, and the other people using it.

Should it be deemed necessary to contact individuals directly to
request they self-moderate, or forcibly moderate or remove individuals
then the CC will have no issue doing that in order to make this list a
more pleasant and useful place.

It would be much more productive if this thread ended now, and we get
back to providing respectful support to users.
