I think @GuppeGroups demonstrates a conception of groups that's lightweight and functional. There's still room to do things, probably as organization actors, that is more in line with expectations about mailing lists, but that would benefit from more a robust inbox than we currently have available
Specifically, though, @datatitian named by name a new parent in an opinion question about how to have groups be a good social experience and I do things like start stubs or other placeholders to remind to come back to things later when it would be rude to act before I forget. This is such a stub
As long as it's predictable who stands to benefit from crisis, you'll have people with incentives to promote crisis
So one approach to enabling a community to deal with crisis without relying too much on the operator would be to appoint a mediator and empower them to enforce the will of the community with respect to a specific complaint
That's interesting in an evocative sort of way, but to comment usefully I would need to know
* what community
* what crisis
* what operator
* what's the diff betw the mediator and the operator
* and what complaint.
For example...I mean, an invented example would be ok. As you said, "A lot depends on the specifics..."

I was going to try to establish a general case and drill down variations, but we probably want a hypothetical example that's sufficiently similar to the hypothetical applications for Guppegroups to make discussion relevant, but sufficiently different to make it obvious that I'm not proposing these choices as a one-size-fits-all for use cases I can't possibly anticipate. The goal is probably to get a place where we understand community driven workflows for handling abuse with sufficient clarity to be able to build support tools

Sorry. I thought you were an alias for another active participant
I'm going to untag @cwebber from other branches of this thread. I think I'm going somewhere here after a break that he'll want to see, but I don't like making people ask to be untagged
