Every now and then people get upset and come here and want to restart the Best Flame War Trophy and stuff like that. And then someone wanted the "Strangest Member Bogie" the other day ... I must say,
, there is some new flavour in kiddie foamers and I just dunno what it is.
Bad luck Johnmc
you miss out. KRviator
wears the Nazi Mod hat. His anti-gurus were TLD™ and STB.

On a more serious note, I have deleted one reply in this thread thus far.
A couple of points to consider.
Moderators are here as participants and contributors, and they have the respect of their peers; that's how
they became moderators. They also have the right to express their opinions and their points of view. Maikha has been a bit of a trailblazer in this regard, in that he has walked across the coals of fire both as a contributor and a person who responds to the task that he volunteers for, here. He has frequently clarified his values on these forums.
Moderators have the duty (granted by members here) to maintain the forums and the responsibility to fulfil that task in a transparent manner and fashion. No one has the privilege of being a moderator and automatically escapes being responsible for their actions.
They are subject to peer review. This, and their reception by the members here ensures that a form of justice is seen to be done across all forums and to all members. Flatop
Behaviour (what you do, and what any moderator does) reveals choices.
You choose to act; nobody makes your choices for you, except you
Your choices are guided by your values, what you believe to be good, and not good. Note, that they reveal you
, not Maikha, nor any other moderator.
Maikha has defined his values most clearly, and that, often. His actions are transparent, and he gains respect for that. Let's see how you maintain your self respect, hey?
Past is past, leave it in the past.
Now to another matter, which, if you wish to discuss, then go to the other thread...
I hadn't planned on having a Moderator's, Bogie this year, as nobody brought the matter up in the thread where I indicated that changes were coming to the Bogies, notably, a reduction in the number of overall Bogies
