I just looked over his site, and must say, hes doing a fine job, and I don't think he's gotten enough credit or appreciation for his work. I think its time to let his magnificent wings unfurl, and allow him to glide freely as a moderator rom place to place, valued and appreciated by all.
There are only advantages in this... no disadvantages. He's in a good timezone. He has a computer, and a internet connection to boot. A knowledge of Frank Herbert. He gets along well with everyone, and is fond of instant messaging.
Come on, make him a moderator.
