Wilth apologies to the moderator for the off-topic posting:

We expect to have the  successors to ANE up and running again by the end of
the month.  We will provide a range of options, from very stricly moderated
to very open.  But - even the open list will have a set of clearly stated
rules, and all participants will be expected to abide by them. Those who
don't will be removed from the list.
