But sometimes it seems appropriate to spell it out that I do very much appreciate your patience and steady balance in all the mass of support, mediation, and information supply you do.
I'm no gushing fangirl as you know. I speak my mind and I don't tolerate bullies or irresponsibility. The vulnerable and newbie uncertain don't get roughed up on my watch and I value your similar forthrightness.
Of course you're no saint but the number of times I've seen you lose patience and act sharp when not appropriate are miniscule when compared to the mountain of patience and sheer hard graft you put in.
You are one of the Great Magical Treasures of Britain - I was going to say in XF terms but on reflection I'm sure your strength goes in other directions too.
But let's just say you're a damn fine moderator mate.
