Re: Increase in the number of Moderators
First I'll say the mods do a great job, and are a wealth of sailing and sailboat experience. Kudo's for all you do.
However, I don't think we need more mods and the ones we have should not be expected to referee grudge matches between personalities. For the most part, they have not had to do much of that over the years I've been frequenting this site. It just seems that every few years a few folks can't help but get hyper-sensitive to anyone that disagrees with their point of view, or poo-poo's their sailing resume, or some other offense that gets them wrapped around the axle to the point that everything is "personal". This is the internet folks. Nothing is personal. Life is way too short to get emotionally involved in an internet forum. Contribute, lurk or don't participate if your sensibilities are offended, but attempting to bend the internet to your will is a loosing proposition.
As it might be summarized on another un-named sailing site, HTFU.
