        Stephan Schneider, I sometimes wonder if you do some things purely out of perversity :-)
        How can you vote that the the moderators are equal in power/responsibilit y. But also that only the primary moderator (the number one equal person) is elected and the other mods are appointed by him/her. Makes not much sense to me!
