that I've been hired in Michelle's position and will be working with the delightful and charming oldgoat as the other paid moderator.

 

YAY!!!!

Oh no... I was afraid I missed some big news while I was away... and here it is.

Michelle, I'm at a loss for words. You're the reason I've stuck it out here in difficult times. I hope to find a new reason. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and all the best on this new challenge.

Maysie, as you know, you're inheriting a sea-worthy vessel. May you and your co-captain oldgoat steer it safely through perilous waters.

Michelle... whoops, lost it again. See you later.

 

Michelle

Aww!  Thanks! :)  Don't be too sad - I'll still be around, posting on babble.  I just won't be bossing anyone around anymore, which will probably be nice for all of us. :)

When's the last time you posted "snerk," Michelle?  *snerk*

Michelle

It's been a while, hasn't it?  I keep waiting for someone to steal it for their username, but the closest anyone has come to that has been "Snert". ;)

skdadl

Well, you see, you're now free to snerk all over the place. Moderators can't snerk. Moderators are sane and sober and well-mannered and fair and balanced and bipartisan, multi-partisan, even, and all that jazz.

 

Now you get to be, y'know, normal.

And I wouldn't even be Snert if, at the time, I'd remembered Grelber.

Ah, l'esprit d'escalier...

Michelle

Sure, that's what I am.  All of those things.  Yeah, that's the ticket.  Ahem.

I'll put you on my resume as a reference, skdadl. :D

Our operators are waiting to take your call.  Smile

Nice to have you aboard again, skdadl.

Things happen for a reason.  Can't wait to see you on the other side Michelle.  The mods are gonna have their hands full.  Laughing

 

Wanted to register my appreciation for rabble's selection of Maysie to fill big shoes. She's more than up to the task.

Best to Michelle and hello to Maysie!

Hope you still find time for Babble, Michelle. You've had to be so polite to me as a moderator. I shudder to think how my opinions will fare in the future :)

 

Michelle

Ha!  Yes, I'll be around, but I'll still be an employee of the site, so I can't go too overboard or they might ban me.  And how awkward would THAT be? :D

jas

I wonder what Michelle's last act as mod will be..! or...did I miss it??

Michelle

Depends on when I go to bed!  I'm not sure I can make it to midnight...I'm sleepy!

jas

Do something totally hilarious - like ban us all before you go to bed! And then oldgoat and Maysie will have to come in tomorrow and hand un-ban us one by one!

Michelle

Unfortunately, that wouldn't work, because I would have to ban everyone one-by-one too!  Too much work - I'm feeling lazy. :)

jas

the end of an era. :)

Michelle

Hey, I know what my last act could be.  I could ban oldgoat and Maysie!  Mwa ha ha!

Maysie Maysie's picture

Yeah, you just try it, Michelle!

Tongue out

Michelle

See?  She even WANTS me to do it.

Michelle, it's called overcompensating... I'm really crying into my Smirnoff vodka cooler right now.

Cry

Good night, Michelle :)

Oh youse guys.

Caissa

Is there a count on how many threads were closed on the weekend? has sandstone been suspending? Inquiring minds want to know?

Michelle

Yeah, we made sure to count carefully just so we could report back to you.  We'll get back to you as soon as our report is finished.

I'm free!  Free! :D

What makes you think oldgoat and Maysie would do that?

Caissa

I suppose I could count. Interesting was a thread being closed at post #80 with the expression "long".

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Babble doesn't deal well with dissent.

The irony is dripping.

Or dissent doesn't always deal well with babble?

 

Irony indeed.

oldgoat

Actually, I'd say we deal with dissent very effectively....

 

... of course these's still that nasty dripping business...

Caissa

Actually not funny oldgoat and another example of the problem.

Maysie Maysie's picture

Given that Michelle is no longer a moderator, and this thread is going a bit wonky, I'm going to close it.

Yes this is another example of "stifling dissent".

Whatever.
