A moderator's difficulties are manifold. He has to ignore many personal jibes (look only at the replies some posters entered in Austin's own thread in which he officially resigned!). But that is the smallest of a moderator's woes. Others include a need to be seen as fair and equitable, and that is nearly impossible to fulfill.

Austin did a wonderful job staying in the middle of the road and refusing to pander to nationalists of one kind or another. He has helped keep this forum open to opinions that are not necessarily mainstream.

The poster you suggested, SEARU, would hardly measure up to Austin's footprints. His personal interests decide too often what he likes and whom he hates. He also does not spend regular time here. A moderator should be able to monitor things daily.

God is erring again.

I would never ban anyone. I would leave that sordid task to voice_cd and I would never recommend that she ban anyone. But God in His Infinite oafishness can't stop attacking Earthlings. God will die a slow and painful death through frustration, dissatisfaction, discontent.

But I am willing to prolong God's suffering life by a few extra years: I am not applying to be a moderator here. Not at all.

I wouldn't advise anyone to do it. You will be critised endlessly spat on and tagged as an Alien straight away.
And I'm sorry to say that the new group of 'Voice' Editors dont give the support now that I had for many years with previous Editors
That coupled with them not answering report PM's makes it frustrating

Are you sure that Austin had always been successful on communicating with others?  I don't think Austin is more powerful than Seneca if considering language ability!
I am eager to know how you would perform if work as editor!
