Thank you Tashah! I hope you are not leaving. I only interacted with you on the music thread, but I always appreciated your posts there.
Lacking the smack.
Considering the flack I've seen her deal with (99% of it related to the ME forum) during her tenure, I'd say that a well-deserved break is perfectly reasonable.
Or even permanent hiatus.
Good luck Tashah, we'll miss your moderation.
The Mark-----Way off, right on, or somewhere in between, it all depends on your point of view.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
Good Job Tashah...always one of the best!
You served long and well. Best wishes to you, Tasha.
It’s clear to me that if members of the U.S. Senate refuse to change the laws to reduce gun violence, then we need to change to members of the U.S. Senate. –Gabrielle Giffords
Tashah did so much for DP in the early years. She aided in writing the forum rules, she was an admin and she took a lot of heat for making the ME Forum halfway civil. She is a bright and intelligent woman who brought a unique level of insight to the mod team each and every day. I will miss her presence on the moderation team and it truly was a pleasure to have worked with her for the time that I did. She did so much work behind the scenes to make DP the great place that it is today. Her thankless efforts and contributions simply cannot be put into words.
Thank you for everything Tashah!
Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, etc... are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
