I want to make clear that PDM has always been a cornerstone of this forum system and I support her completely. She shows incredible patience and strength in a variety of contentious situations. As she has said, there are many times when she is being actively lobbied from *both* sides about an issue. A particular member will be saying they speak for "the forum" - but at the same time PDM will get 5 messages from other members saying that person is wrong.

It is human nature for each person to feel their way is the right way and the way everyone believes in. PDM is often in a situation where she "can't win" and everyone is unhappy. She deserves great kudos and praise for walking that line as carefully as she can. She does an awesome job every day and I do not think she receives enough recognition for that.
