Like I said to nbc, I like making people feel welcome here. I like showing newbies the ropes (really!) and answering people's questions. I like to help keep the forums tidy by moving and closing threads and stuff. And I like the spirit of the mod team--supportive, close, funny.

I don't like when my friends get into arguments--makes me sad. I really, really don't like when people knock Interference, because I'm so personally invested in this place. People can think whatever they like about the site or the management, but it does make me a little upset when people do nothing but bitch, but continue to hang around here.

Hope that answers your question.

Yeah, thanks for doing a great job as a mod. It's a job I could never do.

How do you mods know each other? It seems many of you live in different states, some of you even live in different countries.

You know there are other choices, what about boxer-briefs and commando?

But this isn't about me...

I'm not especially fond of tighty-whities.

Although 2005 seems to be the year for me to be meeting fellow Interlanders (finally!), I don't have any of the mods on my slate just yet. I've hung out with zoney! a few times this year (and have been very delinquent in keeping touch with him as of late, so Jeff, if you read this, I'm going to try to give you a call tomorrow), and I'll be meeting Ewen later this month, followed by most of the kids from the Octagon Bar at the Philly gathering in May (plus non-Bar regulars Mrs. Edge and cydewaze).

I'd love to get together with all the mods, and perhaps later this year I'll get the chance. Many of the mods have hung out, however--Sicy and Elvis live close by each other, for starters, and have known each other for years. We had at one point a whole cluster of mods living in (roughly) the same part of the country, so it was the same deal there. I'm a bit geographically isolated from the rest of the team, living where I do, so I haven't had much of the same opportunities.

But there's a lot of exchange between the mods on messengers and PM and stuff like that, so we all keep in touch pretty closely.

How did you get started do freelance work and how do you find jobs?

A former professor of mine has some connections at a publishing house that does a series on popular culture and philosophy, and they need editorial assistants coming from a background of being generally educated, but not experts in philosophy. I started doing some small work one book in the series, which has expanded to doing indices for a couple of the books and some serious rewrites on a couple others. He continues to send work my way, as we've stayed good friends. He's recommended me to colleagues of his, too, who in turn have given me some other work. So word-of-mouth, mostly--the bit of advertising I've done on sites like www.mediabistro.com and www.sologig.com have produced a whole lot of nothing.

I also had a tutoring gig working with people who spoke English as a second (or, like, sixth) language, teaching them how to make good spoken English (which they generally had) good written English. I enjoyed that. Again, I picked that up through a (different) former professor.
