As a former mod, I know and understand that at times it seems like it is very difficult to keep a reasonable proportion of the members happy with the outcomes of decisions that must be made in order to simply keep this ship afloat, let alone thriving.
However, I'm also aware of the great joy there is in those moments when you are able to sit back and enjoy the natural flow of conversation on this site, and recognize the good it does so many people each day via that which they learn through interacting with others here, and the comraderie that stems from it all.
This is a place where people the world over can enjoy themselves and benefit from the human experiences shared by others, and give back to others through that which they are willing to share.
So, for all that you've done for as long as you have, and more still for that which you will do going forward - THANK YOU.
You're a good man with a level head on your shoulders and I look forward to seeing this forum evolve from the rich base of its core traditions into that which none of us have yet imagined it to be.
Have a great evening!
