Hello & Goodbye Wed, 11/24/04 11:32 AM (permalink)
Please help me welcome Redtressed as the newest moderator to our forums! She has had experience moderating other sites and will be an important addition to the team. On a sadder note, Meowzart, who was one of the founding moderators, will be retiring. Please give her a HUGE thanks for all of her behind-the-scenes efforts.

        Most of you will never know how hard Deb worked as a Moderator. Not only did she provide a polite and calming atmosphere on the boards, but she several times stopped me from going stark raving nuts and becoming an ax-murdering deletion-machine. I'll miss ya Kid !

        I want to Welcome Redtressed, who has more computer skills than I, for sure. I am keeping the DeFib Paddles right here beside my computer, just in case one you you maniacs gets her started the wrong way again!

        I also give thanks to the several of you who did volunteer for this duty. If it weren't for all the income I get from the graft, corruption and kickbacks, I'd probably retire this position also!

          You know mr. Mayor. I always thought that being moderator was a get rich quick scheme

          Meowzart, Thanks for listening to me on several occasions. You and the Mayor always were good listeners.

          Red, good luck. Being moderator is a compliment. Rushmore indicated that you had some prior experience. You must know what it is like. I am certain that you will do a good job. Al (The Calm) "Mayor" is very good about doing that.

                Meowzart,
                good luck in your "retirement" from Moderator-----hopefully this will leave more time for you welcome and witty insight on the boards.

                Redtressed, congratulations-----I know you'll make a fine moderator. Just shave those legs everyday!

                  Debbie,
                  Thanks for your hard work as moderator. I know you'll stay here posting great comments. And I know we'll see you soon in one of the East Coast get togethers.
                  Redtressed, Congrats on your new appointment!

                        Man, I have big shoes to attempt to fill.(No, I'm not intimating Mme. Meowzart had big clodhoppers) She is one grand lady, and I certainly look forward to reading much more of her here, and asking her advice. And thank you all for your well wishes. I pledge allegiance to the roadfood flag, and to first do no harm. I have a dream that one day little roadfooders will shake ,shake their groove thing in perfect harmony, it's the real thing. In order to form a more perfect Roadfood, I pledge hands, head, heart and health(alright, I won't sic my health on it) and promise to be a good do-bee. I, Redtressed do take thee, Roadfood.com as my awfully enjoyable site. Yea though it may lead me through the Shadow of the Valley of Burger King, I will fear no wax paper wrappers. Rest assured this troubadour is acting on her part and the caissons will keep rolling along.

                        I don't foresee invoking my inner dominatrix much at all and have shaved my legs in order to represent you all with pride and good hygiene.

                            Congratulations (and welcome back to good health), Ms. Tressed.

                            As your first order of moderator business, can we do something about the spam-like posts from a "pepper-themed" poster that seem to be proliferating the recently posted forums right now?

                              Welcome Grand Lady

                              I enjoy reading both of your posts!

                              Hmm should that be "the posts of you both"

                              I think not!

                                Speaking of BK ()

                                MY APPETITE IS MY SHEPHERD
                                (POUND 23)

                                My appetite is my shepherd; I always want.
                                It maketh me sit down and stuff myself.
                                It leadeth me to my refrigerator repeatedly.
                                It leadeth me in the path of Burger King for a Whopper.
                                It destroyeth my shape.
                                Yea, though I knoweth I gaineth, I will not stop eating
                                For the food tasteth so good.
                                The ice cream and the cookies, they comfort me.
                                When the table is spread before me, it exciteth me
                                For I knoweth that I sooneth shall dig in.
                                As I filleth my plate continuously, My clothes runneth smaller.
                                Surely bulges and pudgies shall follow me all the days of my life
                                And I shall be "pleasingly plump" forever
                                Amen

                                Another similar:

                                The Lord is my banker; my credit is good.
                                He maketh me to lie down in the consciousness of omnipresent abundance;
                                He giveth me the key to His strongbox.
                                He restoreth my faith in His riches;
                                He guideth me in the paths of prosperity for His name's sake.
                                Yea, though I walk in the very shadow of debt,
                                I shall fear no evil, for thou art with me;
                                Thy silver and Thy gold, they secure me.
                                Thou preparest a way for me in the presence of the collector;
                                Thou fillest my wallet with plenty; my measure runneth over.
                                Surely goodness and plenty will follow me all the days of my life,
                                And I shall do business in the name of the Lord forever.
                                Amen

                                              It seems I was just congratulating you on your moderator duties
                                              during Cheesewit's tour of chessesteak ville. Hope to see your
                                              posts; always good stuff.

                                              Redtressed

                                                I'd thank Meozart for all her fine service to all of us here on Roadfood, but knowing how well remunerated the moderators are, I don't really think they deserve any thanks - they're just doing what they're paid to do.

                                                And that goes for Redtressed too!

                                                Cheers, John

                                                            ....but Red, how do you feel about breastfeeding at restaurants?
                                                            More importantly, were you on safety patrol in grade school? I can picture you with a sash, badge, and stop sign.
                                                            Meowzart, hope you don't suffer "moderator burnout". Look foward to reading posts from you again now that you've shed your moderator stripes.
