Mr. Tweedy Formally Resigns

Hey all,

As you may have noticed, I haven't logged in here for about a month, and I haven't really been around much for a good year. This has been discussed before (see "Where are the moderators?" thread), but I think I need to make it official: I cannot be a moderator. I pretty much haven't been anyway for a while, and I feel bad for just going AWOL. But I am AWOL no longer. I'm just A.

The reason is simply time. I'm currently trying to juggle three jobs, a house that needs fixing up and two kids who we are homeschooling. I don't have time to read all the threads here, much less be a traffic cop for them. Kind of an ironic convergence that as the number of members here has grown, my time for forum-ing has decreased. Alas.

The gods may revoke my "czar" status if they see fit. Either way, I'm just not able to be very czarist, although I hope to still come trolling sometimes.

Peace!
--Mr. Tweedy

It's all good Tweeds! You and Kevin Anderson were founding forumfathers and Emperor Merzatz gives you the honorary mod status along with his soggy blessings.

We seem to be coasting pretty well unmoderated right now anyway. (Correlation or causation?)

Say Hi to your kids for me and don't stress about the rest.

Hopefully you didn't jinx it. :?


Anywho, best wishes, Mr. Tweedy.

This forum never needed much in the way of moderation anyhow. I only ever had to ban one "real" person, and that was Mrs. Grimsly. :)

Caught that one right before she could get her syphilis epidemic started.

And is it true that when the king passes away, those who have been banished may return?

Sure. And we can flame about politics, too.

It was an abusive relationship. Involving my abuse of gerunds.

You can put Grimsley in the search function (at the top of the page), and check out her relationship with her favorite schoolboy. *sigh* Fond mammaries...

Hm. Tweeds is stepping down. K Anderson is largely departed. I may need to bust out the old king maker panel and make a new king.

I'll strip you of czar'dom, not out of any needful desire to dress you down, but simply to alleviate any feelings of responsibility to manage the forums. Maybe as you browse freely as a civilian, without the stress incurred by your title and reputation, it will end up that you post more often. One can hope.

Either way, thanks for your time and service in the name of the tentacle. Best of luck with the bustle and hustle of your life.
