    "The Good Ship L... Talk Classical"?

    Yeah, TV, you have my blessing too.

    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    Well, I must say, people have received the news very calmly, and it's not even April Fools' Day!


    To be serious - thank you for your kind messages of support, everyone (e anche grazie a te, GioCar). I'll do my best to be a helpful member of the forum moderation team. You're a formidable group of passionate, well - sometimes extremely well - informed enthusiasts and experts and I hope you'll be tolerant of a 'newbie' moderator's attempts to get to grips with the role.

    On here maybe, but on Twitter it's a veritable ****-storm.

    ... but just up the M6, the streets are packed with revellers and the one-way system past Dalton Square is at a standstill as people of all ages, nationalities and interests (a microcosm of TC world) celebrate the news. Such celebrations have not been seen in this part of the world since the announcement of the proposed Crinkley Bottom Theme Park in Morecambe over 25 years ago

    Are you sure? They don't look angry enough to have been threatened with a "Crinkley Bottom"

    Let me be a voice of dissent here. In the work place, when a friend and colleague becomes elevated to Management Level, I have conflicted feelings. On the one hand, assuming that the person desired this change in status, I am delighted for them that they obtained their goal. On the other hand, one realizes that the relationship between us will undergo a change. In some cases, the friendship is unaffected, but not always.
    This is not the workplace, so the analogy is not exact. However, while I personally enjoy the moderators that I have interacted with here, there has been a distinct tendency to be heavy handed towards some of the more interesting members (many of whom now no longer post). Turnabout is one of my favorite posters on TC, and I hope his/her change in status will not change that.

    As some measure of consolation, let me assure you that I will never be a mod.

    Trust me.
