    Everyone, I have resigned as a moderator.

    I have known this was coming and have been tapering off my involvement as a moderator for months and virtually became a moderator in name only.

    Unless you have been a moderator on a contentious forum such as this, it is hard to understand the challenges and dilemas one faces. These guys attempt a heartfelt and meaningful effort to the best of their abilities. It is virtually thankless both here at at home. Seeing how I agonized over some decisions here, my wife wanted me to quit years ago, but I convinced her it was a worthwhile effort.

    Anyway there is just too much on my plate these days to do justice to the job. It has been sometimes fulfilling, sometimes frustrating but all in all a contribution I was happy to make. This is a great community. Now its time to concentrate all my energies on my photography and my family.

    life is good.......
    Thanks,

    Thank you for all your efforts, Kirk.

    I know what you mean. I'm a moderator on a forum covering a totally different subject, but of comparable activity.

    Kirk-- Thanks for your work moderating the forum. I used to be a mod on a very big site and I understand the craziness. No need to agonize, you've contributed a great deal to the site.

    I used to mod a high volume forum full of unbelievable bullshit. I completely understand your reasons in resigning as moderator. Cheers!
