Talking Wie "fan" moderator (not to be confused with moderating Wiefan)

Moderator: The site owner asked me.

Contest Statistician: Spends huge number of hours every week setting up the weekly contests and tabulating the scores.
See this thread for example: http://www.mylpga.com/forum/member-c...c-contest.html
There are a few of us who do this, mostly xman5 this year. Everyone is welcome to play, by the way.

I guess congratulations are in order....but I can't help but wonder about conflict of interest given you're one of the most opinionated on this board - especially when it comes to the controvercial subject of anything wie. Tricky tight rope but I'm sure you'll get it done.

Hi 4Putt
There is no conflict of interest. Everyone is entitled to an opinion on this forum even moderators. All moderation of posts are reported to me and handled by myself, and I try to moderate in such a way that will hopefully keep all the members here happy. I've asked if any true Michelle Wie fans would like to step up and become moderator, as I'd like to show this is not a biased forum. No offers yet.

It is possible to have a debate on a topic without descending into name calling, example calling people idiot's. You are all entitled to your opinion, however please try a little restraint against insulting members of this forum.

If you handle all moderation yourself, why do you need moderators?

I think Boola Boss would make an excellent moderator.

Thanks wiefan for the vote of confidence, but I'd rather not go down that road again.
I was just kidding about Boola, because he is obviously controversial, but how about yourself for the job of moderator?

He'd eliminate any post that didn't mention Wie.

I'd nominate LoJo, she's one of the very few (and you know who you are) intelligent enough fans of Wie capable of rendering a fair verdict on posts.

I doubt though if she thinks it's worth her time.
