And I was mostly going by his latest post in this thread in response to her.

I gave a brief explanation as to why it was done back on page 4, and I felt it would suffice. I didn't even know I'd have to give further explanation on a moderator appointment.
I'm just going by what he told me on MSN. Though now that I think about it, he might have just cited the staff response as reason he wouldn't bother returning when shit gets better. I can't remember now.

Mako Eyes wrote: We've had members voice their thoughts and votes regarding staff appointments numerous times before, is there a problem with the staff they've appointed/accepted exercising their judgment in policy and appointments too? That seems like a huge double standard there. Especially if we're just adding a replacement here.
Why is it a double standard for members to want their thoughts about staff appointments to be taken into consideration?

I meant in terms of not just staff but the forum. I don't see how that speaks volumes of anything, except wanting a fresh perspective from a well trusted and respectable person who can give us an impartial and new viewpoint of things here.
Sorry bub, but you're not going to get an impartial viewpoint from anyone. Human beings are incapable of being impartial - yes, that includes me. And again, you've yet to explain why the opinions of someone who's barely been a member for a month is so valuable.

“The management is very bad. In fact, let’s not mince words: The management is terrible!
We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic
decisions. This is a plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these
people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V

“Why throw money at problems? That's what money is for. Should the nation's wealth be redistributed? It has been and continues to be redistributed to a few people in a manner strikingly unhelpful.” -Kurt Vonnegut
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” -John Steinbeck
