I nominate Frank as the Internet's greatest moderator

For us radical types, the moderator who moderates best is the moderator who moderates least. Three cheers for Frank.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Yea it is suprising what he lets us get away with. Then again he is probably very mentally well developed.

Is Frank even here? Where is this guy Frank anyway? Is he just a stuffed dummy propped up to look like a moderator?

Who put him there, KV?
He's a pretty mysterious guy. This is how it works - you send him a complaint, you never get a response, but either nothing happens or someone or some thread gets whacked. It's kind of the Mafia guy approach to moderating.

RE: I nominate Frank as the Internet's greatest moderator

Frank owns this "place". He has created the opportunity for all the thousands of posts and photos to be continuously available to a worldwide contributorship. He owns the servers, and pays the power bils. All in all, one hell of a problem child that requires intervention, occasional reinvention, ongoing moderation, and consistent maintenance. Hat's off!, and sincere thanks to one hell of a facilitator - Frank.
