Would you rather be nath as in math, nath as in the way you pronounce it, or Kid Rock tho?

Right, the username taken directly from my real name comes with a different pronunciation. That makes sense.

Kid Rock ldo, make a career out of name-checking Bob Seger + people thinking you're talented because Eminem is talented. Also, you can get away with dressing like that.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Thoughts on every forum having an annual "yes/no" vote for retaining each of its mods?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Why? I find that posters tend as a group to be really reasonable as to who is a terrible mod. Posters also WANT the forums they post in to be well run. There are big incentives for reasonable voting.

This is the best idea ever especially if you add the caveat that the reds could overrule and retain one and only one of the mods voted out.

this process should have the hidden caveat that if all mods are ousted all posters from that forum are permabanned.

NVG is the only forum I could think of that it may not apply to. Not sold tho, maybe could work there too.

I mean, the fact that she's Tebowing is just too much. I could maybe maybe believe it if that wasn't involved.
