I would like to formally welcome to the team two new moderators: @The_Doc_Man and @theDBguy. Both are helpful, standup guys who I think will serve the community well.

If you think these are good appointments, please give the thumbs up. If you think laughable, give a laughy one. Thumbs down for the haters! And feel free to reply to this thread with your comments.

I would also like to say thank you for this opportunity. I hope there's no hazing involved. :)

Heck, DBG, I'm pretty hazy on a good day so for me it would be hard to be sure it was happening.

Are you kidding me? Sic Semper Tyranus? That is so sad.

Whilst sad to no longer be a moderator myself, I'm pleased to see both DBG and tDM take on the role. Both will I know be excellent.

I had to look up the Latin phrase in the last post...but I'm still no wiser

"Thus always to tyrants." Usually chanted after a change of leadership. Historical connotation includes some discord during the change.

Ditto - notwithstanding that Google says it's Tyrannis. Maybe that's a reason for any confusion as it seems that if taken verbatim it might mean something else but I don't want to go down that rabbit hole.

I hope the new mods are going to earn 2x what they were already earning!

In re: Tyranus - True enough, Micron, but there is no Latin word closer than tyrannis. And since I took Latin in high school, I recognize the phrase even if it was spelled wrong. "Sic" = Thus "Semper" = always, "Tyrannis" = (ablative case: TO) tyrants.

I'm ALWAYS down rabbit holes except when they are rabbi holes due to an overzealous spell checker.

Can't recall if the rabbi/rabbit thing was your joke but I did laugh regardless. There were some Tyrannus links that might have been songs, bands or just misspellings, so I quit when I think I got the drift.

As long as we don't delve into the sound of one hand clapping....

While I rarely have a prepared speech, no one has EVER accused me of being at a loss for words. Usually it is the opposite accusation.
