behind the scenes at CHOW
I'm still here! FYI, I was never moderator in chief. A lot more than moderation goes into running this site, and I keep a bunch of plates spinning while a great, dedicated mod team takes care of the day-to-day forum action. I help on big picture things, plus the nine zillion "how do we handle this?" questions and inevitable train wrecks.
It's always been a source of amusement for everyone behind scenese that some users think I'm doing everything, reading everything, making every decision. I'm a good multi-tasker, but not THAT good! :)
