Moderator Musical Chairs
« on: November 26, 2013, 11:52:40 AM »
Good morning denizens of OC.net!

Per the request of the affected parties, we are hereby announcing a moderator trade: the Faith Issues forum will trade Michał Kalina to the General Fora (esp. Christian News) for Mor Ephrem and a 2014 draft pick (to be named later).  Both boards seem to be pleased with the trade; agents for the affected moderators could not be reached for comment.
I don't typically presume to speak for Mor

How in Mor's good name

This isn't going to be like that trade involving the 1962 NY Mets, where they received a catcher in exchange for a player to be named later and were so dissatisfied with the catcher that they sent him back as the player to be named later?

Who's on first, what's on second, etc....
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I note the distinct absence of "Axios" or "Axioi".  ;)
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...
