I agree. I think it's bad of the maintainers of the consultants
list to say they don't use it and suggest removal rather than
offer it to us to run. At least we have a clear signal that
consultants@ don't want it any more.

I support Michelle Konzack, Krisztian Mark Szentes and Stephen
Hardman as moderators, if they are still willing to do so.
If one of the three moderators steps down, replace ASAP.

What next?

1. Read http://www.ibiblio.org/oswg/oswg-nightly/oswg/en_US.ISO_8859-1/articles/mladvice/mladvice/

2. Make a list of on-topic and off-topic examples and
give everyone a week or so to agree or amend

3. Make a list of "guest authors" (may be subscribers) to write on
a new topic each week, so we know there'll be some useful traffic

How's that?
