"Moderator" Pilotsteve

Hey everyone.

I'm sure you may have noticed I've been away from the Forum for a while, and have taken very little interest in it since I was "blessed" with moderator responsibilities some time ago. Bear with me.

I am no "Moderator". In no way was I ever placed upon this earth to look after the responsibilities of others. I will never be a parent, teacher or counsellor. Since Bill "Searcher", Milspec and others left, I agreed to take over their role but failed to realize I would be often asked to intervene into the business of others. My personal email became populated by the complaints and ire of folks who disagree with comments or what-not; in other words, not my problem. The responsibility soured the Forum for me... I almost feared visiting the very same pages I'd come to love over many years because I somehow became a warden of the discussionary flow.

..

I would like to come back. If I do, it's going to be without the responsibility of "Moderator" to this forum. I will henceforth ignore all emails from the owners/administrators of this domain regarding complaints or ruckus which may need the intervention of those who should be concerned. I'll continue to help when I can, moving threads and posts around & what-not but I hope the readers of this thought can understand why I'm making this known. Basically, I'm the last person who asks be tasked with judging what's right and what's wrong and like you, I'm not about to be casting any stones.

I used to admin and mod several forums, and the only people who want to do that are the ones who shouldn't. I hear ya!

Just come back, and ignore ALL emails except those promising to send you money.

We miss you.

Hope I didn't cause too many complaint e-mails Steve.

My apologies if I did.

Its not a contracted position, that you helped out with.
Put the required distance on it to return to "YOUR" considered norm.

nothing owed !

Please come back. If this place needs moderated, someone else can do it (not me!).

I for one enjoy the words and thoughts you express here.

I could make a joke like "You were gone?!" but I won't. Just add content and ignore the trolls and all will be well.

A thankless task, but thank you, from me, for your service.

Without active moderation/intervention a forum can rapidly degenerate from a place where participants can agree to disagree with one another in a gentlemanly manner to a place where those who show scant respect for the rules merely sling mud in all directions.

Welcome back as an honourably discharged ex-moderator!

So there was a Republican, a Democrat, and an Independent on a plane and they all agreed they were happy to have PilotSteve back!
