    Guys and gals, after the many years of making people mad, breaking up fights, helping people and being told I never help anyone unless I charge for it, I finally decided to step away from moderating here in taxinet. Trying to get the for sale section participants to follow simple directions was more like babysitting than moderating. Its crazy how you can know such nice people, and good friends, but when its time for one to sell something, yikes! But theyre still good folks otherwise, of course lol.

    Anyway, just letting you all know. I still am set up to mod in an emergency but the day to day stuff will be handled now by Ken Edwards, so forward your concerns directly to him now. In an emergency, Ill still be around to help.

    So now Im free to say what I really want to say, and not get called out for being a two faced moderator though! Wink...

    I'll miss you Bill. I thought your taxidermy experience was a great asset to moderating. You do know there is a all new mindset in taxidermy , now !

    I understand this fully. I have to watch what I say to parents every time I contact one. Doesn't it suck having to be politically correct and not being able to say what you really want?!! Enjoy your freedom Bill.

    Bill, my dear friend, there is no way that I could ever thank you enough for your years of dedicated service to the Taxidermy Net Forums. I have relied upon your wisdom and sage advice to keep things running smoothly for over two decades now. Based upon our conversations, I knew this day would eventually come but I kept hoping that it wouldn't. I certainly understand your frustrations. I know you will continue to provide me with insight and advice behind the scenes, and share the benefits of your uncanny knack for seeing the big picture as well as the tiniest details and clues which I was oblivious to. Thanks for everything.

    Your presence has always been appreciated. You're still going to be trolling through the posts though ... right? Wonder how strong the urge to hit the delete button will be on some of them.

    Fun and funny responses! Id love to reply to them all, but I cant always say what I think...we got rules you know.

    Ill tell everyone this...you cannot find a better person to help out moderating a site, than Ken Edwards. He posted above as though it was me! Ill tell anyone who wants to know, that its always been HIS patience and wisdom that made all of our decisions smart ones.

    Also, as Ken as my witness, if you all only knew just how FEW people we ever actually banned. So many just thought they were, sort of like when Jim Cary beat himself up in Liar Liar. Some day Ill sit you all down and tell you what REALLY happens behind the scenes of this great site. Some folks squawk about the operations theyve seen...never mind how many they, by design, never saw!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words, but its you all who should take the bow, without members participating, this site is nothing.
