Muffy is a loyal and righteous dude.

Yet not enough to make moderator apparently.. Consider

Look, all I'm saying is that I seriously question this choice in moderator.
That's nothing personal against Julep, just that she's been here how long? 6 months?
With less than 2,000 posts, 34 rep. Now post count and rep isn't everything sure but I don't see Julep as a proven committed member to this forum compared to myself or someone like Anj or Bucky or Whiskey or Full Circle or dancefourtwo or evenheathen or unfogged or jdog and many other people. Even newer people like onlinebiker or jennybee. Now all these people might not want the job but were they even asked??

I just think it's bullshit that the only valid requirement for moderator is to be picked by DLJs dick.
It's not fair on those that actually deserve it.

While I totally agree there are plenty of people who would be great for the job like you and Anj and others, they had their reasons for their choices, reasons we may not know about and those are the choices they made.


I would love to be able to give my time helping run to the place that has been like a second home to me for almost 3 years but I am more than happy to wait my turn and until then I will continue to give my time and effort to this community as a member for as long as it's here.

Full Circle.

Just noticed the pink FC. It looks good on you. Thumbsup

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm pretty sure his color is (or should be) coral. Yes

RE: New Addition
Love ya, Muffs, but I don't think you or I have the temperament to hold that position... for the same reason, I would never want either of us to be considered and hope they never offer me a job I'll have to in all honesty and integrity turn down:

I am too emotional, and often take things personally when they need not be and I would be better off leaving it alone.

A moderator must be able to deal with a lot of shit, make a lot of tough calls that won't please everyone (and that people like you and I are too likely to take personally), and I frankly don't think I'd be up to it. (Edit: and so, wisely, they didn't consider me for the position, I'm pretty sure! hehe)

Julep strikes me as an excellent choice for moderator, though I don't particularly care who gets roped into offered that thankless task.

If helping run TTA is anything like when I modded on PM, you mean it's a thankless job where you make lots of people cranky and get to do so unpaid while being 'on call' whether you want to look at the site or not? Tongue

Those who think it might be fun, might actually enjoy it, dunno. But I'll just stay a happy sandworm over here without having to read Reports every day.

Need to think of a witty signature.

You would be a good mod. But I agree with you, I would not want that job either. But I'm grateful for the people who do want to do it and do a great job with it Thumbsup
