A very big and very sincere public thank you to Papabear for his very generous time today in providing me some professional advice. Very kind of you, and very much appreciated.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Like Ashley, Kim, Shannon. They're also boys names.

I’m good dub and thanks for caring.

Getting a bit chilly in the 2765 these days.

Going back into the office 2 days a week. Amazing how wrecked I feel after day 2. It’s the travel that’s throwing me off. 3hrs a round trip spent travelling on trains
