Why the change in policy regarding mods? :)

What took so long? This was worse than waiting for Hill Clinton to be ordained as S of S.

JRP, thanks for taking on the job. Good luck.

I appreciate the welcome, and all the humorous replies!:D

I only wanted to add two additional comments: First, that I did not ask or submit my name to be a candidate for moderator. I was contacted and asked if I'd consider helping out. I thought it over and agreed. I really get a lot out of Sailnet -- so this is a chance to give a little back.

Second, I have the highest regard for the work Camaraderie did for all of us during his tenure as moderator. I doubt Sailnet will ever have a more dedicated moderator. I will try to emulate the standard of integrity that he set here. But I definitely will not promise the same level of service he provided -- we've all been spoiled!;)

Here's to you Camaraderie! Thanks for all you've done.

P.S. No money exchanged hands.:D

I finally got a hold of the taped telephone conversations between Pollard and Cam:

JRP: I'd really like to take over as moderator now that you're moving on.

Cam: You think I'm going to just [bleeping] give it to you, Pollard?!

JRP: Look, Cam, I have a pen in my hand...

Cam: You'd better have a [bleeping] checkbook in the other, you [bleeping] [unintelligible].

JRP: Settle down, Cam... Now, I just need the amount...

Cam: You're [bleeping] right you need a [bleeping] amount! And it better have lots of [bleeping] zeros behind it!

JRP: Okay, okay, okay... how about five zeros?

Cam: How about six [bleeping] zeros?!

JRP: Okay, six it...

Cam: No! Seven [bleeping] zeros!

JRP: Okay, now this is getting ridiculous!

Cam: Seven zeros or that [bleeping] Children's Hospital ain't getting [bleep]!

JRP: This is about the moderator deal, not the childrne's hospital...

Cam: [Really sarcatic] [Bleepity-bleep-bleep-bleep-bleep!]

I'm guessing he didn't have enough money in his account to pay off cam, and is resorting to flattery in an attempt to appease the RV mafioso.
