Greg is just doing this for the money :stirthepot:

Well done, Greg, and thank you for the service to the members. You are a stalwart here, and I think you will bring some fresh ideas.

Thank you kindly people!
:soapbox:
Clears throat... ahem!

My aim here as moderator at DW is to be as obnoxious and ultra-orthodox as I normally am and to stiffle any free and intelligent conversations...

Hey, you! Up the back there. Why are you sniggering?

...

Seriously though, I hope that I will be capable of helping DW to grow and develop.

Congratulations.

Just remember, power corrupts and moderator power corrupts moderately.

With moderator power comes moderate responsibility?

Congrats Greg!
