I am pleased to tell you that Cooper has accepted our invitation to be the new main moderator of this forum.
He is a regular at the Gaiety, understands the sensitivities of that sort of environment as well as New York politics and will be perfect in quietly making sure this forum works.
I want to emphasize he is not acting as a policeman or, as someone put it, a "hall monitor" and most likely will just be behind the scenes like all of the moderators here to advice us if thing get off kilter.
Every particpant here is a guardian of this site! If you see something you think is wrong, please hit the ALERT button, explain why you think someone is out of line. Cooper and the moderators will instantly receive a flagged email message and will respond in a manner he thinks is appropriate.
Cooper is free to express his own opinions. Please understand his opinions are his own and may not necessarily reflect the opinions of me or anyone associated with the site. If he has to reiterate a policy of the board, that of course is just that.
By the way, I told Cooper that, unlike the security guy at the Gaiety, he should allow you all to jerk off here if you feel like it.
Again, my thanks to all the moderators and a big welcome to Cooper.
Damn, I edited for HORRIBLE spelling and grammar errors. Sometimes I jes fel so dum.
