When Joe Republic stepped down, Dave asked me to take on the moderator's role in the Congessional Elections and Statewide/Gubernatorial Elections forums. I love these two forums for their ability to bring together people with diverse views and deep local and historical knowledge and look forward to the rise in interest as November 2016 gets closer.

People are passionate about their politics (myself included) and I anticipate a lot of lively debate and strong disagreements. I hope to moderate as sparingly as possible and only when things cross over into a zone that make discussion of the issues and people impossible, such as vicious personal attacks and accusations of dishonesty. Wherever possible I'll edit rather than delete and be transparent about my reasons.

Thank you for reading, and I look forward to an exciting election cycle.

Congratulations on your promotion.

I'd like to find a support group for internet addicts. The trouble is, they're all online.

I'd also like it if dishonest or inaccurate claims were deleted or edited.  

I personally have no problem with debates that involve personal attacks but I can't stand dishonesty.  I truly don't understand why most people seem to dislike personal attacks but abide dishonest comments.  If I think somebody is a liar or is generally stupid, I believe calling them that is not an 'attack' but is just a statement of fact.

That's just my view, however.
