It doesn't matter if LITP is a good mod or not. He can be the greatest mod the internet has ever seen, and people will still disagree with him holding that position as a Pats fan on a Steelers board. I know it won't change my mind on the matter, though of course I have no say in the decision - it's not my board. We had a similar situation a few years ago on the board that HTG and I co-administrate where there was an opposing team's fan as a moderator - this was before I came on board as a mod/admin. Many people objected to it, including myself - even though most everyone liked this person - and the owner of the board eventually removed this person as a moderator. It's similar to a politician - he can do a great job in office, but there will still be people who disagree with him and don't want him/her in office. Nobody here has to like or agree with that sentiment, but that's just the way it is. And unfortunately, I believe that more members will leave - MattsMe and Ambridge are only the beginning.

I say give LITP a chance. He knows the members and has been here for a long time. Knowing the members is a huge aspect of this job. He also knows who doesn't get along with who and history between members. That's another big one. If LITP gets out of line Mike will remove him and if he makes unfair bans they can be reversed. (Not saying he would do that) No harm in seeing how it goes.

On the other hand, I also fully support LITP. We've tossed banters back and forth, but I do support the work he has done and the fact that he can put his own team prejudices aside for the betterment of the board as a whole.

Farewell Ambridge, you will be missed.
Rock on LITP, thanks for your efforts.
Sorry to see ya go !!
LITP, first off this is not a personal attack! I don't believe anyone is questioning the quality of your posts. I believe most are wondering why not use a STEELER fan as mod when all things are equal. The number of posts doesn't make some one a good member or moderator, if that were the case SF would not be considered a good member because of his lack of posts over time.Just because someone has lots of posts doesn't mean they say anything important or relevant, see Hardwork lol. A good mod should be invisible,not controversial, because if that were the case then TH easily wins!!

The biggest sticking point ,IMHO, is that there are plenty of STEELER fans on this site that are qualified and should have been given the opportunity. Unfortunately there will probably be more members that follow the footsteps of Ambridge and that is bad. No appointment of a Mod will be universally accepted, that is a fact. No appointment of a Mod should cause loss of members though either...

Now I do have 1 question for you though: Why does a Patsy fan spend so much time on a Steeler site??

Thanks to all those who are giving me a chance.

I most people have had a their say on this subject now, so'ill just lock this thread up before it turns into something it shouldn't be.

Bleeder, i've already answered that question multiple times in this forum - you can imagine I dont want to regurgitate it all again - i'll happily PM you if you need further explanation.

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
