It is with a touch of sadness that I announce the retirement of the_lock_man from our moderation team. He's been our SPAM killer extraordinaire and always given an honest and unique perspective to our moderation efforts. But, like so many of us he has a real life out side the forum which has taken more and more of his time of late and he let us know that he was retiring as a mod since he wasn't going to be able to devote the attention to it he felt it deserved. We really appreciate all that he's done and we are grateful! All of us on the mod team are volunteers so we fully understand his choice...but of course we don't have to like it. Thank you very much Mr. the_lock_man!
