Seven months has elapsed since this experiment started.  If I am 
asked whether the experiment had any perceived impact, my answer 
would be that the impact is insignificant.  In terms of feasibility, 
it is a significant effort to read the mailing list 
daily for a long period of time to determine when there is an issue 
and when to step in.  It does not make sense to pursue this 
experiment if it did not bring anything positive to the subscribers 
of this mailing list.

Could you please send some feedback about whether it is useful to 
have Facilitators for
