I would like to thank the Internet Architecture Board for requesting 
feedback about the architecture-discuss@ietf.org mailing list.  Given 
the domain name in that email address, isn't it a mailing list which 
falls under the Internet Engineering Task Force?

There was an announcement about the moderators some time ago.  I 
don't recall seeing them  described as "sergeant-at-arms".  I looked 
up the term and I found this: "in feudal England a sergeant at arms 
was an armed officer of a lord and was often one of a special body 
required to be in immediate attendance on the king's person, to 
arrest traitors and other offenders".  Given some recent 
interventions on the ietf@ mailing list, I would not suggest the 
sergeant at arms as a model to follow.

S. Moonesamy
