So are BL.com moderators required to give their last names? Something in BL.COM 2K? :P

William, enjoy the vast pay and benefits of this lofty position..... :D

No, Michael, it's probably not "required" that moderators give last names. But in a spirit of openness we feel it's a positive for BaptistLife users to know that we do have last names and that we aren't posting anonymously.

By BL.COM 2K standard, William will do a marvelous job moderating the new forum. Of the moderating team, he's the only Southern Baptist. We now have moderators in New York, Iowa, Oklahoma, and now Georgia. Of course, Bruce is currently living in Georgia, but he's the owner. I'd say we're covering a lot of territory in BaptistLife in the USofA. :thumb:

Good idea. About time, I'd say. I'm looking forward to this.

Bruce, this is a great move! Thanks! William is just the ticket to keep the SBC friendly (and a few not so friendly :wink: ) folks around here, including this Okie, on topic and somewhat civil. . .though I may have a suggestion to ponder: What with all of the confusion concerning labels that continually get pinned on Baptists with different persuasions, instead of calling William a "Moderator", don't you think a better title would be "William, the Con. . .servator"? :lol:
