I have no idea how other people do stuff. Heck, I barely know how I do
stuff myself :)

You ARE kidding, right ? I'm the one that will need a policy the most.
I'm a very hardcore, dictator-like moderator; known to be so.

Some of the stuff people saw me write, more than one, on lists I moderate:

- - "My list, my rules"
- - "You right to express yourself is subjected to my right to repress"
- - "Since when is this a democracy ?"

which is all very well (and more than once welcome) on several places,
but definitively not on a CentOS list. That is why, supposing I'll
be moderating the pt_BR (or simply pt) list, I'll need the rules. Badly.

Gotta tell you the truth. I don't ENJOY being a moderator, taking
responsibilities and all that. I do it because a lists needs a moderator,
and even thou I don't enjoy it, I'm willing to, which is more than you
can say for most subscribers :( I do, on the other hand, love a well
organized and well moderated list. So I try to do my part.
