AG, I find that the "quote" function doesn't work in the same way as it does on DD. At least for me.

Quote
As to subject matter, I am trying to find a niche that people will feel comfortable going to for interesting, stimulating, enjoyable and at times, righteous anger producing articles, video and audio.

Rummaging around the Admin settings I discovered I have a limit on word count per post. At first I though I would jack it up like RE did at his forum but now I think I'll keep it because it keeps each post from becoming over long and forces me to split posts into parts.

I think I have an advantage as an admin in that I don't dwell on one subject and, quixotic as it may seem, continually seek to provide down to earth, realistic hope for myself and the viewers of the forum even while I holler and scream about some injustice here and there.

I will make every effort to avoid a pitfall in publishing. That is, to concentrate on putting out more material on a subject that gets lots of views. I respect the views but I realize that it is entirely possible for a crowd of 'one subject' zealots to dwell in a certain area. If those just happen to be the ones passing through on a given week or month and I mistakenly assume the other subject areas lack merit, I'll unbalance the subject matter and do future viewers a disservice.

If it's okay with you, I would like to make you a moderator here. No, I'm not asking you to spend more time or do more than you do right now. I realize you have your hands full with the facebook, your channel and the weekly doom load.  I just think it's your right. 

What is the max word count per post? I haven't posted enough to hit it yet...

Part of your distinctive voice is that you "continually seek to provide down to earth, realistic hope for myself and the viewers of the forum even while I holler and scream about some injustice here and there. " It is what makes you unique, IMO. There is a shaft of light even in the darkest of circumstances. That, plus your rigor in following evidence. (I'm a hyperbole-and-vitriol guy, myself... ;D ;D)

I am honored to be asked to be a moderator. Thanks. Will do my best and will try to match the tone of this fine place.
