New Mods - Congrats. BRF is colder then before nowadays, seems to have caught cold like the economy.

I always thought there will be a place ; some headquarters where all the moderators get together and an oath is taken new mods are initiated.

But seems like no such mysterious place as brf headquarters:

where such a ritual will take place. Hnair jee was on holiday for many months, while Singha ji on road trip and suddenly they find out over email / sms that they're now mods.

Our man Singha is such a nice guy. Never if ever do I see him angry at someone. Probably the most popular person on here.
I wonder how he will put on his bad guy mask and kick some behind as adminullah. :twisted:

Kyon ji, you wanna present your mush as target practice to him, in the interests of charting unknown territory? :twisted:

Congrates to new mods. Disappointed not to see name of Nagiullah in the list. Seems one of the new Mods offered choice between getting Batli and becoming Mod. He choose the obvious. :D

even now there are mods who have less posts. I think I did too, when I became a mod. there are other examples.

anyway, post count is hardly a barometer to gauge a poster's worth.

how time has passed-
congrats to new mods.
as every other brfite dreads,

mods become enemies with their antics.
every brfite aspires for freedom to do whatever they want, these breapers are like khujiwals bringing their jaadoos. :(( :(( :(( :((

I read postings intermittently, have not contributed much recently. I think the new Mods are a nice well rounded "faculty". I hope they continue to post like before, besides moderating. Good Luck!

Hello all, I couldn't find a better thread to communicate to mods and members, so using this thread for the purpose. All I want to do is say my good bye and whish you all plenty of fun here. My long, extremely enjoyable and enriching association with BRF has finally come to an end. Not sure if I have grown apart or BRF has gone other way! Anyhow it is not important but it is obvious that I don't fit in anymore. My primary interest was in economy thread from the beginning but I became incompatible there when USA/west got in global financial meltdown. For years I have been hardly posting anything useful and lately I found myself acting as a counter weight, devil’s advocate, etiquettes’ activist and defenders of the people/ideologies that I don't even support. This all was happening because of a sincere desire to keep discussions honest, focused on policies not people and making BRF appealing to broader audience rather than let it slip continuously towards (what I thought) a cultish forum.
I sincerely hope I am wrong and I drifted in wrong direction. I have been wrong so many times in my life and nothing would make me happier if I find BRF was either steadfast or was evolving in to a better place and I was mistaken.
No hard feelings, when it lasted it was fun and all good things come to an end.....

Katare sahab,

No need to drift away. I personally like reading your posts. I am sure there are others who quietly like what you are doing.

Katare sahab, even when I didn't agree with their content I for one looked forward to reading your posts. has there been a shift in BR's tone over the years ? probably. but that happened more due to the changing attitude in society where BRFites come from rather than by design.
I would think that your opinion is even more valuable now than it was before, if for nothing else than force people to step back and rethink.
