Moderating this group is no easy job, and both of the above have done a wonderful job. Hopefully whoever steps into the boots next does just as good as these two. Hopefully they keep posting, both are fantastic posters imo.
I remember when I moderated a politics board (that's now totally dead), and one of the biggest reasons I left moderating that board was when a poster accused pro-choice folks as equivalent to nazi sympathizers, and I told him it was inappropriate for the board (it was based on the rules). The whole board exploded when I enforced the rules and things just got personal, way way too personal.
Anyways, the point is is that I know how damn hard it is to moderate people on the internet with very strong opinions, and I have a great deal of respect for people willing to volunteer their time to moderating.
(Hopefully both Lowetide and Cerebral continue to post here regularly)
This season took the good out of a lot of people and some of the good out of this board. I always enjoyed Cerebral and Lowetide's comments. At any rate, good luck to both. I often pop over to Lowetide's excellent blog to get my fix of baseball metaphors and excellent Oiler's commentary.

Oh wait, that's happening already...
Damn funny post, Mowzie! Are your nerves still frazzled from the trade deadline?
