Under new (mis)Management

This is to announce that this forum is now under new (mis)Management.

The following user have mod powahs:
CELERON
LECK48
JACFLASH
PETE1BURN
WHITEKNAVE

I have assumed Flak's role as being the host (and chief admin) of this forum. He has transferred all of his powahs to me, and has forfeited his mod powahs.

I have added Jac to the list of mods. Celeron, Leck, and Pete are existing mods.

Please let me know (either in this thread or by PM) if any of these conditions apply:

1) You have a problem with any of the above mentioned users (other than myself) having mod powahs.
2) You are on the above list and wish to forfeit your mod powahs.
3) You would like to recommend another user (and why) to mod status.

I would like to keep the number of mods to a short list of people who are generally trusted by the population at large.

My Mod Philosopy:
-----------------------
Other than for general forum maintenance I don't want to have to use my mod powahs for any reason. I will not delete posts. Edits will only be performed in extreme circumstances (i.e. inappropriate links, content, etc.).

Banning will not be allowed. However, seriously disruptive users may have their posting rights restricted.

Otherwise, I will just be a normal (ab)user.

-----------------------

Finally, I would like to personally thank FLAK for his years of service in hosting and running this forum, and for the smooth transition of the forum to my hosting account, and for doing all of the work in getting the forum running on my account.

Any future service interruptions will be my responsibility (although I may beg flak for help if needed).

Whoa, 20 horses dropped dead in Florida, and they don't know why. And these were athletes:

Florida agriculture scientists are performing necropsies Monday on 21 horses that died as they were prepared to compete in a Sunday polo match in Wellington, Florida.

"We'll be testing blood and tissue to see what the common denominator was here -- was it something injected, was it bad water and so forth," said Terence McElroy, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.


quote:
Two horses initially collapsed, and as veterinarians and team officials scrambled to revive them, five others became dizzy, Tim O'Connor, spokesman for the polo club, said Sunday.

Peter Rizzo, executive director of the United States Polo Association, was at the match and saw the horses drop to the ground. "It was surreal," he said, calling the deaths "unprecedented."

I'd like to second that.

Flak deserves a huge debt of gratitude from all of us. He ran this forum for over five years, fixed it fast when it went down, and put up with me bitching constantly about minor things to fix. Thanks Flak!

If it matters, the mods you have are the same ones I was going to have.
