Well, that makes two of us. I found your private e-mails to come 
completely out of the blue, and found your pressing me to be 
aggressive. I don't LIKE private messages about this matter.

I note with irritation that I just received private e-mail from 
Morfin on this matter, though I have told him not to send me mail for 
any reason.

I am willing to continue in the role of language tag reviewer, that 
is, someone who reviews language tags, so long as the members of the 
ietf-languages list are content that I continue to do so.

I am not interested in moderating the ietf-languages list.

Why on earth did you add list moderation to the duties of the 
language-tag reviewer without (at least) asking the encumbant 
reviewer what his opinion is?

I think between Doug and Harald and me this work can proceed.
