Edgar Owen < I'd be happy to moderate the group if you wish. I 
already moderate a number of science oriented groups so am familiar 
with what is required, and it would be just a little extra effort.

Dear Edgar, 

thanks for your interest. You are a very nice person, and I enjoy 
reading your observations. 

I am going to keep the offer open for a few more days so that 
everyone can have a shot. I would not mind adding more than one 
assistant moderator. Keep in mind, that your duties, 
responsibilities, and power will be very limited. You can ban those 
you do not like, but only after verbally humiliating them in true Zen 
Forum fashion. Bill will be the ultimate authority on all issues 
regarding sarcasm and humiliation. 

You will not be able to stay at the Zen Forum retreat lodge or my 
private mansion until you have worked as an assistant moderator for 
at least one year. You will be eligible for vacations in Japan, 401K, 
pension plan, casino pass, profit-sharing, and Vegas trips depending 
on your ability to recruit gullible members of this group who are 
willing to pay the monthly membership fee of $25.00 per month and a 
dollar per post. 

I just want you to understand that the last assistant moderator (2003-
2004) hated me bitterly because she did not understand the concept of 
me screwing around with people for the sake of my entertainment. I 
hope that my joking does something positive for the victims, but it 
always provides sarcastic entertainment for me. I see that as win-

I have curtailed that side of my moderator activities over the past 
few years, but lately I find it hard not to return to the old ways. I 
am burned out again. I guess that means that I need a break from this 
group, so that I can step back and appreciate all the good people 
that are here. 

In spite of my best efforts, this is a really good group of very nice 
people. I would like to come back with the Beginner's Mind and feel 
the love and the strength of the ideas and people.
