Bill, this is in response to the specific earlier query regarding *how FTDNA is to know* when an admin is not serving the project well.
Marianne suggested we let Max know about such admins when we encounter them. She further suggested that some of us might be willing to serve as at least interim admins for rudderless projects.
Some of us felt that "competing projects" should be allowed, so that dissatisfied participants could migrate to better admins. Those who'd been confronted with competing projects themselves demurred. ;-)
I suggested that FTDNA might institute just a couple of tracking measures which would alert them to a problem project so that the staff can do... whatever they do in such instances.
So, that's the sort of list Max is talking about.
