I have to agree Forrest and Peter are doing a great job. Of course let's not forget that much of this is due to Matthew and then Shane's hard work. I have to say though, and please don't be offended Peter, every time I read 'Global Moderator' I have to chuckle. It just sounds so pretentious. Having met you in Lebanon I am absolutely confident that you don't mean it that way or are like that.
Oh thank you so much for your post. You have single-handedly lifted my cloak and beneath I am nothing but a squishy piece of marshmallow creme.
You have lessened my ability to threaten and manipulate posters here.
I hope that Santa is good to you this year.
If he needs ideas for you, please have him contact me. I'll take care of you.
You are one of maybe 20 people who visit this forum who have met me / know me to some degree. I did not come up with the title - the forum software did. Arnold or Rambo might be a much better vision of a Global Moderator.
Am I the typical vision of an enforcer? Nothing could be further from the truth. My dogs' fleas laugh in my face. I am a fun loving guy who just want to make this place a good place to visit, learn, and have fun. My hope is that I never will have to use any responsibilities and authorities except against spammers.
Markus, Thank you. I chuckle at the idea also. If my wife gets me a bathrobe with "Global Moderator" on the back for Xmas - I'll take back her gifts.
Then I'll run.
EDIT: This post was edited by the poster because it could easily be misconstrued. It is all meant to be humorous, although it may fall short of that goal. This is also an example where those smileys can help a post by indicating the intent.
