As moderators, we've been discussing some of the problems with the board right now. We aren't happy about the sheer quantity of personal attacks and other stuff that goes on regularly. To make matters worse, we're often late to the party, so we're just penalizing people after the fact, and they get ticked because everyone else was doing it too.
It (finally) occurred to me that a large part of the problem may be that we just don't have enough moderators to handle the load. I think we have fewer moderators today than we did 10 years ago, when 1,000 posts in a day was an achievement. So, based on a few rounds of nominations, we've selected some additional moderators to help with the load. After these moderators get used to their duties, we may add even more.
