Take your live tree vs fake tree debate somewhere else!

(No I am not a moderator ... but I’d be happy to consider the offer if they asked)
I forgot to add, when they ask you to moderate, it’s not necessarily on any thread you ever visit or are interested in. Like, they asked me to do Toledo, OH. Ive never even been there.

I assume they do that so you won’t have any biases or opinions that might taint your judgment

I think you'd be a good moderator, and you could moderate C-D political threads -- trust me, many regular SavForum posters couldn't (and shouldn't) do that. The Toledo offer sounds like a tryout gig. Would be the beginning of your moderation career, but modding would be stressful. You'd have to be a mean lady at times. It's part of the job.

Yeah, the ability to collar total asshats tends to transcend geographical boundaries.
The Atlanta Mod is a local, BTW.

Anyway, it was a long time ago, and someone sent me a lengthy email explaining things and I opted out, and they were mad. Nobody is going to ask me again. I’d be awesome, but I’m retired and no longer need to put in the effort.

This is one of my favorite subjects! Obviously not the right forum board
but I never understood this approach to life. I'll stop right here because I have found this is not a debatable subject with those that have "retired". I only ask: What does one retire from? Life itself??

I have retired from doing anything that I don’t feel like doing.

Retirement -- like artificial Christmas trees, Hillary Clinton, and SCAD -- has only two choices: pro or con. Like you, I enjoy my work (stimulating and I use my education), but I'd prefer full retirement any day. My dad retired with pension at 55 and loved his 2nd job till his mid-70s. My sister retired with pension same age: she refuses offers to serve at her old school as a free mentor or as occasional part-timer for pay, gets up late, enjoys her freedom. I have IRAs, no pension, so will work till age 72. Had I chosen government/teaching (most in my family did), I'd be fully retired.

Good for you -- and exactly what I'd do, if I could.
