That was exactly my point, though perhaps more restrictive than Mitch's
(since he wanted a term that would also cover a Sysop).

I wasn't *really* suggesting `Prefect', you understand (although it amuses
me that it's an anagram of `Perfect'); I was gesturing toward the nature of
the beast under discussion. `Monitor' is another possibility; as are
`Custodian', `Protector' and `Steward'. The last of these is perhaps the
most general and least offensive... although the idea itself remains rather
offensive however it's parsed.
