Congrats Gunny!

We are not through discussing and voting on the applicants.
We will be selecting more mods in the very near future (few days).

The number of candidates exceeds our present needs, so it's not always easy to pick folks. But when we finally get around to picking from among the many candidates, we generally do an alright job.

We expect that Gunny will make excellent and valuable contributions to DP as a member of the Mod Team.

We will continue to add mods as time goes by. Our system is deliberative and only semi-formal. While we move as quickly as we must, it can seem slow going at times. Everything seems to arrive in good time.

"Marine," dammit..."Marine."

U.S.Army = "soldiers."

U.S. Marine Corps = "Marines."

I don't expect people to agree with me; I expect (or hope, at least) them to defend their positions in a rational manner and without resorting childish flame-fest taunting or ad hominem attacks.

Aside from the ocassional smarmy remark (not that I'm not guilty of that as well :) ) you generally argue your positions without having to resort to personalized attacks, and I respect that. I'm sure you'll do a good job as a mod.
