DavidBryan stepping down as GM/Mod
« on: November 30, 2006, 04:56:34 PM »
To all posters at OC.net,

Due to changes in my life as of late, I have had to step down from my position as one of the Global Mods of OC.net.  I simply do not have the time necessary to devote to helping to moderate the forum, and FrChris and the rest of the administators have accepted and understood the reasons for my resignation.

I'll still be around posting, though, Lord willing.

DavidBryan,

I for one want to sincerely thank you for all the time and work you have contributed to this site.

As I have said before to you, my only consolation is in knowing that you will continue to be posting on OC.net, where your inciteful contributions can help teach us all!

inciteful contributions

"Inciteful," huh?  I had no idea I was so inflammatory!   ;)

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Hehe. Were "inciteful" a word, such would actually be quite appropriate, provided we were to understand "incite" in its more basic meaning of "urge on" or "encourage" (and not in its secondary, yet common, meaning of "provoke"). As it is, I think DavidBryan's posts are more insightful than filled with words that incite rioting.  ;D

P.S. HEY! You other nitpicking pedants beat me to it!

Thanks for the lessons in humility, all!
