In reply to:
I'm actually surprised you guys think there's really enough happening here to warrant a third mod.
I assume K is asking because Bipperty (or whateveritsnamewas) was Dogz? Otherwise I agree with you totally.

Seriously though, I can't imagine naming a new mod (at this point in time) as being anything other then a backslapping, self-congratulatory gesture (heightened by the fact that K pretty much all but revealed who he wanted on board).
I meant to comment (facetiously) before that the only justification for a new appointee was that the Secret Mod forum was even deader than the boards, thus demanding new input.
That said, I think the best choice for a mod would probably be someone who is opinionated and has a good working knowledge of TW-style arguments, but who is willing to relinquish that in order to become a mod. By restricting suitable candidacies to ultra-polite, happy to help members, you're begging to employ someone of the sensibilities of Pablo.
Off topic: R/R, I also think that Stu would be a good choice, at least on a temporary basis. Why, just a few months ago, when I made a joke about his mother copulating with a hamster, my bozo count rocketed up to ten (from 2 or 3), although Stu himself did not reply and, I assume, took the gibe in typical humour and magnanimity. It was rather, presumably, the 6 or 7 other TWers who had had relations with his mother that were offended.
Mormons are the worst because, much like telemarketers, they're not allowed to fuck off until you tell them to. -- Wraith2
