I just want to extend a big thank you and to@GoAskAlice and the other people behind the scenes who keep this site free of spam, plagiarism and advertising. When spam lands on the door, it is never on the site for long before it gets deleted. Really is most impressive how it is dealt with (especially if you compare the clean up rates on other sites) @GoAskAlice is it Alice or Alex?

I'm an Alex (though it isn't my real name) The original admin who held this account was an "Alice" (also not her real name), so when I took over, I tried to keep true to the theme of the account name.

@GoAskAlice i think that was a good idea even though you are not an Alice.

Goaskalice or who ever else is responsible does a great job. That is for sure.

@GoAskAlice is actually 'more of an Alex' (his own words). There is (to my knowledge) at least one more 'Admin' and no doubt there will be more in the future, as need arises. I think that the plan is that there should be at least one available for the more pressing things (like spamming) 24/7.

I was wondering if Alex (male) preferred to be called Alice - each to their own I am impressed with the whole efficiency of things here!

@destry I don't think he minds much. Neither are his real name. 'Alex' is more gender-correct.

We do get that feel that this is a clean site by all standards.

It is a Alex who goes by Alice. Now, if they would find a way to get rid of those that steal out discussion subject ideas that would be great.

You can't control other people's minds if they happen to think of the same or a very similar subject to you! It's surprising how often it happens.

@owlwings ....That's hard to believe that it happens all the time and it is in the circle of folks a person has on their list.

I do try to remove excess repeat topics, usually of the more mundane nature. Like, do we need 20 discussions on how to earn money online? Otherwise, I try not to remove them unless they are very, very similar in scope and focus.

@destry I too am impressed with @GoAskAlice , but I fear the job maybe getting too big. The more I look, the more I find.

I think that there are a few mods in different time zones so that the site is manned 24/7, but everyone needs a tea break!
