It is finished.

I've passed the Forum Moderator torch.
And boy, did those forumers make sure I went out with a bang.

In the week preceding my departure, I banned 5 individuals for misbehavior. One of them accused me of racism because she's....wait for it....German.

Another made me this:


Obviously this was created to insult. I can't remember why this particular person doesn't like me, but if I had to guess, it's probably because I told him not to post while drunk or to stop swearing or whatever. 

While previous artistic renderings successfully heart my feelings:





this latest piece has the opposite effect. I love everything about it. 

It's titled "Megheart"

The crappy quality, the hack photoshop job, the guy to my left. It's the happiest thing I've ever seen. I want to blow it up and hang it in my living room above the fireplace I don't have.

Anyway, it was an interesting two years. I learned a lot. Like the definition of a troll, and the meaning of IMHO. I learned how to not take things personally and not care if one basement-dweller on the internet thinks poorly of me. I learned that I never ever again want to be in charge of a large group of people. There go my political aspirations. Better return all the pant suits, I guess.

I'd be lying if I said I would miss the position. But I will look back fondly on names I was called, the crazies I encountered, and the thick skin that I grew. 
Thanks for the memories, interwebs.
