haven't the most dangerously weak areas of our structure been the 
centralized areas?  IOW, when the site is hosted on one member's server, 
w/ no backups elsewhere?  those are the times we've been (rightfully) 
worried, no?

one person should never have the ability to make or break any part of 
evolt weo/leo/beo.  IMO.

I was having this argument w/ a former admin who was saying maybe we 
should have had a "dictator" all along.  I firmly disagree and I think 
that even if stuff is a bit dusty, the significant fact is that we have 
survived and we can always build on what we (still) have.
