Re: And Yet ANOTHER New Moderator!

Yes, moderation is necessary, but only in moderation .

To be serious, I appreciate the approach to moderation taken here vs that other big cruising forum. There is a lighter, more moderate touch here which allows discussions to get real, and sometimes serious, but still is there to step in when necessary.

I actually think this makes for a more civil space because it allows the forum to become largely self-moderating, instead of relying on a referee all the time.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Apparently, he is unable to stop the rain from falling almost every weekend on the Chesapeake Bay.

But I won't hold that against him.

Mike, you hit the nail squarely on the head. I really hope that it doesn't descend to the standards that at times prevail elsewhere.

Re: And Yet ANOTHER New Moderator!

As far as Im concerned, all moderators should be from Maine. Different breed up there. Superior subspecies of the human race.

I doubt hell do much moderating. Probably more to do with updating his informative old threads. Id just like him to solve my SmartGauge problems.

Welcome and thanks for the thankless duty, MS.
