Now that Boot Camp is over, I assume the two new Mods understand the terms of the secret Bonus Program?

No doubt they'll be pushed into much higher tax brackets and hit the higher IRMAA tiers.

I'll remember that when I'm looking for investment advise from forum members.

Nice to see so much appreciation for the new inductees and the moderation team in general.

There is a lot of thought put into keeping this forum as good as it is.

As members, if you want to help make our job easier, just be a little nicer to each other and a little more patient with each other. Then we can manage the "easy stuff" like kicking the spammers out.

Many, but not all. I have now been a moderator for 16 years. I was still employed for the first 12 of them.
