I am thankful for that token of trust (after having recently been
dragged through the subject lines as a warmonger by someone else), but
I'm afraid I have to decline the honour to be part of that tribunal. I
don't support dictatorships - benevolent or not.
Also, I don't perceive myself to have a clean record regarding obnoxious
behaviour on the lists, so it would be wrong for me to judge that of others.

I cannot help but wonder: For someone who can appoint himself, what
exactly is the meaning of "stepping back"?

I don't like your means, but I support the goal.
