Why is everyone so concerned about this being a huge mistake? After all, moderator duties are slight to insignificant. Does anyone have any real doubts that this place could function fine without a moderator at all? And even if a moderator is minimally necessary, how much of a sentient being does one have to be to adequately fill this role? Will anyone ever be admitted to a better law school because of a moderator? Will the quality of information in the "T14 of Ben & Jerry's Flavors" be improved upon due to diligent moderation? So should we care that Nealric and PJC were made mods?
Absolutely. PJC is surely going to ruin the place. I have it on good authority that he's gone of vacation and forgotten his suitcase
, for example. I've also heard that he once singed his eye lashes when trying to melt the boogers out of his stuffy nose with a cigarette lighter. He also opposes a college football playoff system and believes that our health care system is fine as is.
So yeah, be scared. I wouldn't be shocked if he accidentally banned Matthies - the only poster who's ever been known to be helpful on these boards.
Bad choice, sirs. Bad choice.
