    "To lose one moderator in a week may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness."

    If I may bastardize Oscar Wilde and not end up in Reading Gaol for doing so. :rolleyes:

    Discuss.

    They could all just be playing a game of "Clue", I suppose. :rolleyes:

    First Gillette now Prepstud. It seems there's a whole lotta drama going on everywhere at the moment.

    Its like a soap opera where they bring in new characters & then gradually kill off the old favourites..

    ..one by one. :eek:

    Popcorn?

    Why do you care?

    Is there some insurmountable force preventing you from just discussing ordinary events and matters with the other members?

    Why this fixation with the internal politics of this site's administration, over which you have precisely zero influence?

    I'm not sure that "care" would be the correct verb here.

    It's the same force which caused you only to be able to pose questions in your post to me.

    Why this fixation with the internal politics of this site's administration, over which you have precisely zero influence?
    You take me too seriously, roaring-mouthed one.

    This, coming from the guy who felt compelled to create an entirely new thread on the subject...? Rich.

    My questions, BTW, were actually a rhetorical device intended to inspire you (and others reading) to step back and re-examine the possibly misguided motivations for your creating such a thread, and to then look forward to the ultimate futility of same.

    ...and wisdom the know the difference.

    Let me dispel any rumors. I resigned because I wanted to, no one pressured me, and in fact, I was asked to stay on. I'm not going to list my reasons here, but suffice to say, my leaving was purely my own decision.

    Well he was going to start a thread asking whether members leave the toilet seat up...or down. Possibly even with a poll! :eek:

    But he decided to go with this instead. :wink:

    Thank you for the information, good sir, and for all your work as a moderator here. Let us hope the ship continues to sail smoothly without you.

    And mainly, we're glad to hear that Professor Plum didn't get to you in the library with the lead piping. :rolleyes:

    Can you create a poll with just one option, though?

    Because clearly 'down' is the only acceptable answer. :rolleyes:

    How does one even become a moderator?

    Are you nominated after a certain amount of posts?

    No.

    Your nipples have to be of a certain, specific diameter.

    Mr. Rubi killed Mrs. Gillette in the dark hall of the moderator forum, with a Starbucks mug.

    Um, NO...and thank whatever powers you believe in for that. Otherwise, we might have a ruling cabal of the most idiotically insipid morons the interwebs have to offer up.

    First you must fast for 40 days and 40 nights. Then you buy a goat and two turtle doves. You bring these animals to the Mod Squad Temple. You ritually slaughter the goat and two turtle doves. You sprinkle the blood of the goat on the altar and smear it on the horns on the corners of the altar. Then you throw the fatty bits and forbidden parts of the goat on the fire on top of the altar. The incense from this is pleasing to the Gods of the Mod Squad. You take the slaughtered turtle doves, pinch the heads off, and sprinkle the blood on the fire and throw them whole into the fire (including the heads you just pinched off). Let the fire burn completely out. Give the remainder of the goat meat to the Mod Squad so they can have their ritual feast.

    After this you rub the ashes from the buring of your sacrifices all over your body and dress yourself in burlap sacks. Then you must go into the inquisitor's part of the Mod Squad Temple. You are asked a series of questions that you must answer correctly. If you answer one question wrong you are the next offering on the altar. If you answer all of the questions correctly, you are given a Mod Name and welcomed into the tribe.

    I heard it was only five questions:

    1) What is your quest?
    2a) What is your favorite color? (or) 2b) What is the capital of Assyria?
    3) What is the airspeed of a laden swallow?

    Sorry, I meant three questions.
