i'm not poo-pooing the idea here, but i do want to remind everyone
that roles need to be able to handle *mulitple* people...

for instance, while i may be in the email answerer role, i need to be
in it with others as well, since sometimes work or life prevents me
from getting to things in a timely fashion...

i'm sure that's understood, but sometimes even i forget this isn't a
job, it's just what i do with all my free time...
