    Huh. You make an astoundingly good point. Really I am just looking for something to talk about and this seemed as good a topic as any.

    No worries. I will concede that there are universes in which these questions have real impact, but for all graffes is (and I'm a fan!) -- I no longer believe that this is it.

    TS;DR -- Being a moderator here is like being the ball in a paddle-dick contest between a dozen very strong personalities. It's a dull, thankless job, with either too much or too little stimulation, and no happy ending. Minds get changed here about as often as they do in Congress, and most of the reason for coming here involves arguing with old friends over stuff that no one wants to see eye to eye on. If the worst thing that can happen is that a mod goes unstable and bans people for 15 minutes until a cooler head logs in and unbans them, I doubt anyone would notice, and -- even if they did -- it would amount to nothing more then a big dumb show.

    Some of you people need some real excitement in your life if you think a mod on graffes might go on a ban spree that actually mattered.
    This!

    Go for it, SD can only turn the drama control up to like 5 or maybe 6. It goes up to 11 and I dont think anyone here ever pushed it above 8. I think we need some real life property burning to get it to 11, this forum is too old for that kind of stuff on many levels.

    If the job is volunteering to clean up our messes then why the fuck not, you waiting for a particularly astounding butler to pop in?

    That's just it though. Almost no one wants the job.

    Thats a good point. I could definitely see Star Demon as good janitorial material.
    Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.

    What's giving you the impression this place is short on mods? Mods are like 50% of the population here lol

    Seems like the implication is we're short on mods, so anyone who wants the job should get it. This doesn't match reality. I'm not surprised or anything, but it's worth stating.

    Voted yes. S-D needs a bit of trust and responsibility in his life, and if it has to be forcibly inflicted on him by us... well, maker help him, but so be it.

    Yes, you did a great job of ensconcing stagnation. You must be so proud.
