Alan, I think you could throw some light on this thread and possibly
remove some of the heat, by clarifying the situation.  The subject
asks for *additional* moderators.  Does this mean additional people to
spread the load of whatever moderation is currently imposed or is it
intended that the level of moderation is to be increased?

Perhaps it would be useful to publish the rules of engagement that
apply to current moderators and the proposed changes for the future.
