@ the Pat Condell vid: THAT ought to be in the "Things You Love" thread. Excellent verbal takedown - I agree with every damn word. Thanks for introducing me to this fellow, JM.
The "alert" sfx on my laptop is very low-key. If I'm not sitting at my desk, I can't hear it. Occasionally I leave my laptop on my nightstand when I go to bed, but only if I have a clear calendar the next day. Forum responsibilities have to remain a very distant second to real life responsibilities. Once upon a time I did try to "do it all," but that story has a pretty rough ending.
There have been times when I've considered putting in for a co-mod, but there's two problems: 1) I'd need somebody who could cover the hours that I'm inactive, which means I need someone from overseas; 2) if we didn't have a perpetual spambot problem, it would be a waste. Under normal circumstances, I'm happy running OTF solo. Even if the traffic in this section was heavier, I'd still be perfectly content running it myself. For whatever reason, due to the theme of this sub, the personalities that gravitate here and the more volatile topics that come up, it just seems like things run smoother if one person is "in charge".
Now I'm rambling. I hate it when I do that.
