Re: Oh no...
I have always have much respect for Smiley as well, but there seems to be something childish about way he has handled these recent conflicts. It's disappointing to see. He doesn't want anything to do with this forum unless he can be a moderator? That creates suspicions of his intentions where there weren't even any before -- I don't think anybody actually thought he intended to use his position as moderator to steer the community towards his business. It was just important for the the community to be rid of that question entirely, and there's not much else to it.
