OMG MOG, you're really setting a good example for staff responding to members' criticisms and opinions.
Good lord, I wish every staffer were as intuitive and eloquent as you.

This is clearly a staff where people don't understand the purpose of constructive criticism and/or sarcasm

Y'know, sometimes, I think the Koolaid club around here doesn't really get just how laid back the staff actually is.

And for what it's worth, SoS is not some mere flash in the pan. Yes, he's new to TLS, but he's hardly new to this community, and many folks here are familiar with him from as far back as 2005. In all that time, he has always been well reasoned, slow to anger, equal in judgement, and generally trustworthy.

And let me just state this- The quickest way to ensure you never get a moderator hood, on this or any other forum, is to act too eager to get it.

Please, elucidate for me where people have been complaining that the staff isn't laid back enough. If anything, I've seen people complaining that they're too laid back - a charge I don't agree with, incidentally, but it bears pointing out.

Yes, he's new to TLS, but he's hardly new to this community, and many folks here are familiar with him from as far back as 2005.
Haven't you been emphasising from the start of this forum's beginning how this isn't ACF? Please, elucidate what caused this shift in thinking.

In all that time, he has always been well reasoned, slow to anger, equal in judgement, and generally trustworthy.
So you're basing your decision on behaviour from years ago, then? Since clearly he hasn't been a member of TLS long enough for you to get any accurate idea of how he fits into this community.

And let me just state this- The quickest way to ensure you never get a moderator hood, on this or any other forum, is to act too eager to get it.
It's kind of hard for for TLS staff to defend that position when the whole reason half the people on your staff are there is because they asked to be. But really, the only people on TLS who've acted eager for a staff position are Vendel (ahahahaha) and Quexinos.

It was my distinct impression that wrists required hands. Which ducks obviously don't have.
