I agree. Rabah is doing a bang-up job. And I am certain that his motives 
for warranting webmasters are the very best.

But the fact is that Rabah will not always be the chronicler. If he 
institutionalizes "warrants", then he paves the way, down the road, for 
some other chronicler (and not ALL atlantian kingdom chroniclers have 
been of Rabah's quality) to require webmasters to attend Unevent, to have 
to file reports, and to have to turn over their "office" every 2 to 4 years.

Watch closely: if Rabah, out of good intention, hands out warrants, then 
a couple of chroniclers from now, those warrants will be required if you 
want to have a group web page and some chronicler will "fire" or "fail to 
renew" a webmaster for failing to file a report.

If you want to thank webmasters, say "Thank you" and leave it at that. If
you want to post urls in the Acorn, help yourself. It's harmless. But,
frankly, it makes more sense to just post _one_ url for the kingdom and
have links from that page to everywhere else.
