This list was created +30 years ago by the founder and early members of
the GNU Project as a place where people would be free to express their
concerns and talk about topics related to free software and GNU that did
not have a place in other existing lists.

It never had any kind of moderation beyond the usual deletion of spam
and the inclusion of some guidelines in the info page.

After all those years, however, suddenly the users of this list witness
the entry of two people, namely Carlos O'Donell and Mark Wielaard, who
declare themselves administrators and moderators.

How and by whom they were appointed remains unknown. Certainly not by
the GNU project. So the most plausible answer is that they took it by force.
