    When velo contacted me to gauge my interest in becoming a mod, my first thought was of the old Maytag repairman commercials ... a man sitting in a lonely office because he had no work to do. It's extremely rare for me to come across an objectionable comment here, and in browsing the mod area where such things are reported, I see that problems come around maybe every few weeks ... sometimes months. I've been on some forums devoted to various topics where the need for moderation might come about every few minutes or hours. LOL It speaks well of the members here, who are infused with the atmosphere coming, as I mentioned, from the top down.
    I like the atmosphere here too.
    Although we sometimes have ongoing problems with a member, most of it is about dispatching the occasional blatant spammer or addressing newer members who might accidentally breach forum rules or place a post on the wrong board.
    Spammers end up in Velo's coffee grinder.
