I just noticed (curious, I went looking) that the
long-and-still-hidden archives of admin were subject to a complete and
irreversible purge in November 2001, shortly after a soi-disant
'election' to appoint new members.

I was once told by an unnamed admin that this was slightly marred by
several instances of admin members discussing the rest of us behind
our backs in extremely unprofessional and offensive ways.  If true,
that would certainly be one reason for about three years of
evolt.org's history having been completely blown away.  And perhaps
someone didn't want the new appointees to see what the list they'd
just joined had been saying the month before.

But we'll never know now.

[This is just another reason my eyebrow goes up whenever people start
getting nostalgic for that period.]
