Just for the record, I am more of a retired mod at this point than a mod. I once was a mod, many moons ago, but haven't really moderated anything (or been moderate about anything for that matter) in a couple of years.
Since I did it once when the board was far less busy, I do appreciate all of the time and effort that the mod squad puts in to keeping things humming around here. Here's hoping I finally meet everybody this year.
Everyone experiences music differently.To say that something is subjectively wrong with live music is to also say that you are more than just your credentials or experience. It says that you are above whatever it is that you see as being the standard. Breaking everything down critically to the point where you are above every matter looking down on it only isolates you and makes you look foolish.
WHAT!!! What is this mod appreciation crap! You all know we are biased, mean spirited bastardos. All we care about is ourselves. You are all our minions and exist only for our amusement!
Nah, J/K, I love you all (well, most of you!)
Yes, we DO know....and yet...we still love you ANYWAYS! LMAO! That's just the way it goes! Hee! ;D
Having had the privilege to meet MOST of the mods on this board in person at various festies and get to know most of them at least a LITTLE bit... (OK, I think I MET Adam ONCE...don't think I have met kai, think MAYBE ran into aquariumdrunk once and am pretty sure I have at least said hello to funktopus)...for the others I feel pretty secure in saying that they are STELLAR peeps and really good at what they attempt to do on this board which is NOT always easy...to draw lines between spirited debated and opinion and nasty name-calling, rebel-rousing destructive and mean-spirited opinions and tangents meant to stir up emotion not grounded in fact.
Do we need some fresh ideas and new viewpoints? I'm not opposed to that at all...but it is NOT my call nor anyones but the appointed caretakers of this board and what they feel is in the best interest of it going forward. SHould there be a base 4 member panel that is the core and 4 slots that rotate every 2 years or so? Maybe that's one suggested answer. But that could help OR hurt. It's something to think about careful and not just change on the fly. I believe that people HAVE goot intentions and it's only through outside influences that make us have doubts and do otherwise.
