I would just like to write a very large "Thank you" to our moderators here, past and present. Things I've recently discovered on other sites across SE have brought into sharp focus the way U&L runs so smoothly.
I've been a forum addict since long before the days of Stackoverflow and I've always been aware how important good moderators are to a community. Without them forums of any kind (even Stack exchange ones) become cliquey, sour, and eventually die.
I think it's a great credit to all the moderators here, past and present, that U&L remains a largely healthy community where technical discussion (even debate sometimes) is encouraged. I wholly believe that they have been even handed, tolerant, polite, and above all respectful to the wishes of the community.
I know in the past I may have been [quite vocally] opposed to an occasional decision here. I now wholly regret not taking the opportunity at the time to express how well I believe our moderators are doing generally.
So yeah... Thanks!
