He still reigns in Individual Politics, but there's nothing there except "Opinion of" threads.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Correct.  Dave emerged from the dead long enough to accept Lunar's resignation as mod of US General, and install Badger and Moderate as replacements.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

Neat. Badger and Mr. Moderate are like Lunar split into two separate, dueling personalities.

This forum also used to be a place very much in touch with political reality as a whole but not anymore just earlier I was reading that the average gauge of electoral votes for Obama is going to be around 310-350 or a similar repeat of his 2008 margin.

It's part of a long-term plan to split the forum into two species: the Eloi and the Morlocks.

The problem with free speech is that it’s hard, and self-censorship is the path of least resistance. But, once you learn to keep yourself from voicing unwelcome thoughts, you forget how to think them—how to think freely at all—and ideas perish at conception. Washiqur Rahman and Avijit Roy had more to fear than most of us, but they lived and died as free men.

So it will be even more difficult to distinguish Mr. Moderate from Mr. Morden now that they're both moderators. Tongue

How could you possibly confuse me with that weirdo? Tongue [I think I'm safe saying that here, as long as no one explains to Moderate that he can infract on boards that he doesn't moderate.]

I've been caught up, but I profusely apologize for my lack of attention over the last 8 months and wish the new crew the best of luck.  I wish I could have had them take over 6 months ago, but better late than never!

Just wait until someone posts something even remotely positive about Santorum or Toomey or any other Pennsylvania Republican. That poster will suffer the wrath of Badger. Mr. Moderate is our only hope.

Positive statement about the Evil Ones! AND disparaging comments about mods!! 1000 infraction points!

You may now go and serve your sentence forthwith locked in a hotbox with CARL and a repeating tape loop reading Cesar Chavez's autobiography.

Yeah, this is one of the dumbest complaints against the mods ever. Oh no, they continue to post their political opinions. Everyone knows that mods have to take a vow of silence when they get the job.

I'm sorry that the two of you didn't read my original complaint that Badger is too combative to be a moderator. That excuse has been used to deny others moderator status in the past.

In fairness, Phil has a bit of a point. I'm not sure I'm too combative to be a mod (as noted, one doesn't give up one's views, and I appricite the defense Smiley), but I realized without urging that this is something I'm going to have to, if not turn down, at least avoid periodically turning up to 11.
