  •  I think we're still the only completely horizontal (4+ / 0-)

    group out there......

    And I think it shows the character of Baja libs that it's never caused any problem at all......

    It was taking a pretty good chance when we set it up this way,  but I think it's worked better than even I thought it would......I thought there would be some issues but this has gone a long way towards restoring my rapidly failing faith in the basic decency of humans, and esp political junkies like we all are.....

      especially after I watched one of my other groups blow up. It had 2 admins with everybody else editors. There was an outbreak of paranoia, and one of the admins just up and demoted everybody, all of a sudden. The Nuclear option. I think we're better than that. I'm having fun with this thing.
      Thanks again for your foresight.

      •  I think part of the reason is the distributed (2+ / 0-)

        responsibility. With it,  everyone is either a problem or a solution ........ imo most people want to be a solution.....

        It makes everyone think twice about what they write in everyone's name as well as getting others to collect and add to and such all with equal responsibility and imo reward......doesn't hurt having members the quality of ours either, between rec list regs like Mother Mags (who well deserves it imo)  and the sheer quality of the writing overall in the group it brings a sense of pride as well as the desire to nurture rather than destroy.....

        For a group who deals with a small part of a reddish state, we have more than our share of recced and rescued diaries imo and some of that is the lack of vertical control......
