    I think fool would be the bolder choice and another good one. He has a sense of humor and no real enemies here that I'm aware of. And I don't think you have to be a Christian to understand and enforce the rules, that he'd be less inclined than most to jump the gun. Most of the suggestions have been good ones, though most would be polarizing on some level.

    I'd be great () but too divisive among a certain segment of the membership. And, worse, I wouldn't do it. I think the best job here is being a member. I like that freedom.

    Anna would be great, I think a bit like cattyfan, but there's no way she'd say yes and I think she stays busy enough at any rate.

    SD would spend too much of her time trying to track down IPs.

    Psalmist would clog the machinery with graphics laced infractions.

    SoJ would actually be terrific...shoot. Unless he tried to lace his duties with humor. Then there could be trouble.

    Bybee would leave the place covered in the blood of trolls, but then who would we talk about?

    zoo...I'd support him, but he'd probably ban me. He thinks he's been cleverly setting that up but I'm onto him (thanks SD).

    I was going to say Buzzword, but he left me off his list so nuts to him and he'd better hope I never am a moderator.

    Stripe...given his judgment on the fair/right business I don't think I could trust him to be either, so that's another nope.

    Rusha is an atheist and if fool can't get around that no one from that camp can, though I think she'd be a good one.

    Vaq and Granite...yikes. In the end there could be only one and I think we need both.

    IK would be a great pick. She already got most of it. I think she's picked up the rest AND it would make Sod pass out, given his conduct since.

    That's gold.

    Who am I leaving out? Oh, yeah, TomO, Light, AB and Tam.

    Well then...

    There go those votes.
    And then we get to TH.





    Bastion of truth. Purveyor of humor (sorry, AB, humo(u)r in your language).

    I think he would make a fine choice.

    He doesn't always see eye-to-eye with the upper echelons, but he is "fair and balanced." (Sorry, TH, for the Fox News reference.)

    In all seriousness, though, I have liked TH since day one.

    Then again, I like most folks that aren't anti-bbq and beans, so I may not be saying anything particularly noteworthy.
    The Author of all watches over me, and I have a fine horse.

      I'll tell you why.

      Because the mods should be a close knit committee.
      And the best way to have less dissension within a committee is for all to have the same basic principles.

      The worst committee you can have is one that has members that disagree on too many things.

      After all, this is a theology site; so the committee elected to maintain TOL should reflect TOL.

      We don't tell our children fairy tales so that they will know that monsters exist.

        I don't have feelings

        Needs to be one that is present on a daily basis (or close to it).
        I think I could manage this one

        Needs to be one that is not intimidated by others.
        no idea what you're talking about

        Needs to be one that has the same beliefs that TOL wants to represent (or close to it).

              Have someone of differing view might cause too much bickering within the ranks.

              Here are some quotes from the TOL rules.



              "TOL is entering it's 12th year. The following rules are the most current commandments for our forum. Follow these rules and you will be a happy camper here on TOL. Break these rules and you will likely be banned. Keep in mind TOL is a biased forum, leaning very far to the Christian right, and therefore we interpret our rules from OUR perspective. There are many dissenting voices on TOL who have been debating us and fellowshipping with us for years, but those voices understand whose house party they are at and are respectful of that."

              "4. Thou SHALL NOT call other TOL members names without cause. Appropriately identifying the wicked is not only allowed but encouraged. Again, TOL is a right-wing Christian forum and therefore our bias is not hidden."


              Someone's who's views are not in line with this may have a hard time moderating with this in mind. You would not want to place a wolverine in charge of a caribou herd to keep wolves from eating it. Likewise you would not want someone who is ideologically dissimilar with the owners of the forum. This is a Christian site. I've seen other Christian sites fail because non-Christians or ideologically dissimilar people were allowed to moderate. The result is chaos. It looks good on paper, but in the real world it doesn't work.

                My vote is for no more mods. Less is more.

                    Yep.
                    Contrary to popular belief, TOL is not a democracy.

                          I see what you're saying, and it makes sense. I had in mind Rusha when I wrote that, though, and she's shown repeatedly that she not only understands but respects the principles underlying the TOL commandments.

                          Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

                            Maintaining the structure set forth in TOL is also a responsibility of the mod committee.
                            It's not just about banning those that make offensive comments.

                              In what way? Can you give an example of when you think I'd do the 'fair' thing over the 'right' thing?

                                I'm gonna come out as a spicy mustard, long beard .40 caliber guy.
                                But I could be a plain mustard, clean shaven, 9mm guy without much of a stretch.
