Wow, congratulations. I did kind of think you were good people, but I didn't think you were that active or established on the forums. Clearly I've been away too long when the interesting new people are being promoted to moderator. xD
@Nicodemus, I really like your style and sense of dry wit! Unfortunately, while it's admirable to champion the underdog, the underdog isn't always worth championing particularly at the expense of splitting the mod team or the board membership to extreme sides. Sometimes it's worthwhile to pick our battles so we have to roll over.
