I hate to guess where I'd be in the Directv realm without this site and all the helpful mods, as well as the tremendous wealth of talented people who populate this site.

I did a brief stint as a moderator back in 2003-2004 during the wild west days of the board, when heated discussions about politics and religion raged like wildfires and people got banned for life.
Being the unofficial 'resident curmudgeon', as well as a charter member of the board's non-existent "Spelling & Grammar Police" at one time, I sought to raise the standards of the board by berating and belittling anyone caught posting without a dictionary and thesaurus at hand, which, of course, made me the target of those who saw no reason at all to improve their writing skills. One prolific poster and notorious misspeller, a well-known member whose identity (EB) shall remain unknown even said (in so many words) that he saw no reason to learn the correct spelling of the words he so consistently misspelled!
Well, I finally realized that my one-man campaign to elevate the board by trying to improve users' posting skills was not only a lost cause, but was, in large part, unappreciated. But even now, as Curmudgeon Emeritus (ordinary private citizen) of this community, from time to time must compulsively throw out the occasional "than (not then)" admonition.
Congrats to Chris Blount, our illustrious founder, for nine great years, and my personal thanks to you, Chris for not banning me a long time ago as you probably should have!
