I don't see this as being anywhere near the same level of responsibility as it was filling in for Dr. Bob. He's still around and he'll still be the person in charge.
Don't worry. I like being a poster here too much to let anything interfere with that. I like getting and giving support.
I guess, for one thing, I can see where Dr. Bob would like to be able to have a life. :) And I don't mind helping if I can.
For another thing, I find it quite upsetting when there is a problem on the board that gets out of hand and escalates, especially when it's one of those things where early intervention would prevent a lot. I've noticed that happens when Dr. Bob is away a day or two. I guess my thought is that having a few deputies around, who would be on and off the boards more frequently, would stop a situation from escalating. I guess we'll have to see how well that works in practice, as opposed to theory.
By the way, if you'd ever like to contact me off board, my email address is bullyforyou77 at yahoo.
