Hopefully, you can delegate some of the moderating or other less happy tasks to others, even for a little while so that you can catch your breath. Im also sorry that some of us on the forum are arguing that their voices are being silenced. For what it is worth, I have found that thefora has been quite tolerant. Personally, I have a very few people that I dont even bother to read, so I applaud your tenacity to keep up with everything! Only recently we have put one of those 'participants' in 'time out'. It could be argued that that person should have been banned, so that they were not banned is an indication that you are not 'silencing anyone's voice' more than imposing a standard of 'manners' and decorum in this academic (polite) community! So you and the other moderators have been far more understanding and accommodating than some participants deserve! My only suggestion (which is why I would make a terrible replacement) would be to stop arguing, block them and move on to better things! ... I do want to express my appreciation for keeping this community active. While I would not miss everyone, I would miss most of the people that participate. That would not have happened without you and the other volunteers that do the work to moderate the boards, keep out the bots, and know what to do to fix the errors in a timely manner!
