    dont worry, I think alot of the chosen "council" are pretty middle of the road.
    I know I am. So hopefully the bureaucracy will be kept at a minimum.

    Does the new Council expect to utilize the Star Chamber for the upcoming inquisitions?

    Does this mean that we must be fanatically devoted to the Pope? I don't think that's going to work for me. Can I be fanatically devoted to Henry Wessel instead?
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I think we're going for 'shock and awe'.

    As long as you have a nice red uniform, you will be left in peace.

    This is the issue. The problems that APUG has are nuanced, generally not requiring banishment or the inquisition. It is rare when we have multiple long flaming threads. The days of cliques and packs of marauders appears to be over -- and it was never that bad.

    What the council will (probably) do is act as a steering committee and an advisory board. Their mere presence in a thread may be enough to keep people on an even keel. Where there are problems with a member or members they will help define a course of action.
