Hmmm, Anarch... while I appreciate you not appreciating some ... ah... less fun aspects of that other forum, it is kinda petty to sabotage the 'secret' efforts of that other forum by announcing their anon. mods here. Also kinda odd that they apparently have all this secret talk there, but cannot keep it secret. But it is still a bit petty. Not that being petty is quite beyond me...
Though, I must admit... the choice of some of those mods is a bit odd. I appreciate Dove and Carter, but they would not be the first names that would pop up for me as ideal forum mods, just as I would not nominate myself, Anarch or Kaitlin (unless there were no more suitable candidates) here. Well, I WOULD nominate myself, but only to do very very little actual moderating, because I feel that most instances of moderation tend to be on the unecessary side.
One name jumps out, of course. Starts with X. Haven't seen too many posts by him, but from what I have seen... hardly an ideal moderator.
And yet, it will probably be an improvement. Better than 1 mod. that has to run to do the bidding of her favorites, moderating posts here and there whenever one of them is starting to look bad. And while it is clear that the large group of mods (don't know all of them) belongs to a set of people that lean one way rather than another in many debates (and not so much a 'fair representation' of most frequent posters there), maybe that will 'help' them in forming a block against dissenting opinions. Good for harmony, that.
Meanwhile... I am happy to post here. Maybe this place doesn't quite have the same level of drama as that place (and I know that lots of us really love a bit of drama), but still... mature discussion has it's perks.
