Запорожцы пишут письмо

Вот, написал. Пока не отослал - что думаете?
To: Abuse Team
Cc: Managers of Livejournal

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to attract your attention to the following posting by LJ user krylov. In this posting he expresses a popular opinion regarding future relations with the LJ Abuse Team. The reason for a change in these relations, in his opinion, is the recent chaotic events related to suspension of a significant number of Russian journals, some of them indefinitely.

In a nutshell, he suggests that a s.c. `Russian council' should be created, consisting of `popular' and `objective' Russian LJ users. The aim of such a `council' is to become a mediator in any potential confilcts between Russian-speaking LJ users and the Abuse Team.

In my opinion, this idea is totally flawed and will inevitably lead to the collapse of the whole Russian sector. The reason I think so is as follows: knowing all I know about our sector, I am sure that whoever sits on such a `council', will be dragged into various conflicts of interests and will eventually have to choose sides. The consequences will be disastrous. Besides, it would be virtually impossible to elect people to sit on such a `council' on a fair basis, given that in any voting there will be dishonest people who will create dozens of `virtuals' to vote for their candidate.

Summing up, I am confident that the current scheme is working reasonably well and there is no need whatsoever to make any exceptions for the Russian LJ users. I'd like to ask you to ignore any calls of this kind from the group led by krylov.

Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building!

labas, только что активно участвовавший в дискуссии вокруг моего письма, вдруг вытер все свои комменты и исчез. В результате стало мало понятно, о чем собссно дискуссия. Мало у меня всё-таки опыта в общении с элитой ЖЖ, мало... в следующий раз буду предельно остороженЪ!
