That was me.  The offer still stands, if required.  I'd be willing to put in
the time to set up the forum as a draft and wouldn't object to a decision to
take it down if it is deemed uneccessary for OSM.  Also willing to take
responsibility for ongoing forum administration or to handover
responsibility to a more established OSM contributor, as required, once the
system is in place.

It is clearly a contentious issue.  I won't be arguing the points for and
against an OSM forum - I'm just offering to do whatever I can to help.

PS: I would be in a strong favour of a *CLEAN* and *SIMPLE* forum. I speak

Me too.
