    ...looking for a moderator. No , not here, they know better.

    ===============

    Why? I'm a bit of an ass, lack patience with ignorance, cultivate respect for others (not necessarily myself re: I'm an ass)
    I'm technically competent, I have a thicker skin than most, (actually don't give two cold s***s what people think of me)
    Amateur Extra that remembers his roots. AF7XT if you must know.
    I work best when NOT tagged with moderator status. I gently suggest a different path in public, ask wtf-over? in private, and ask someone to take a few days off before enforcing it. No really I have a hair trigger and will kick someone to the curb for poor spelling, bad grammar, and any mention of domesticated donkeys. Okay it's one of the two I don't remember which.



    Why not? See above.

    Look, you probably don't need me . I'm reasonably sure I haven't needed you. I've been registered for years and posted once. Maybe that's ideal. Maybe that isn't what you need. It's radio I'm interested. It's azzhatz and I want to send them to the cornfield.
    I already maintain or help maintain several forums in the thousands of active members range and am a firm believer in handing the keys to the inmates whenever possible, either because I'm lazy or the membership is quite capable of handling the azzhatz all by themselves without my meddling.


    I wouldn't be available for spam clearing on a daily basis or even registration review. I would accept ad hoc email from user tabbed complaints and act within policy, or not. I get "creative" on occasion. Once required 300 words on respect for fellow human beings before allowing a user back in. Another essay was on the life of the Dung Beetle. Yet another was that the user pre-emptively PM 20 random users apologizing in advance of future offense.

    Even if this might be a waste of my time and yours I hope if the application wasn't taken seriously (it was? Oh dear, there is work to be done here!) at least I may have provided a smile.

    Merry what ever the hell makes you happy
    and
    All my hopes for a new year.

    ===============

    “When the going gets tough, the weird turn pro”.

    Thompson, Hunter S.
    Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

    IIRC

    Finished a set of philosophy exams in college. Returned to dorm and read that damned thing in one sitting. Almost started over. Unlike Koestlers,
    Darkness at Midnight, — also a one shot read — it was too close a fit.

    Unlike Hunter, my brain stew needs nothing extra, thank you.

    Now that you mention it, we could use a WWDX Official Observer. He could work directly under Captain Kilowatt. Change his name to Private Picowatt, and I think it could work.

    Well, if they decide to accept your proposal, then I / we(?) are to presume that you're going to be promoted to moderator of that forum and - although congratulations are in order, should we forward your mail?
