    Hi, all—

    The good news is that I've taken on a challenging new job. The bad news is that said job is going to demand my full attention, so I need to scale back on my extracurriculars, including moderating the investment forum here. (I'm staying on as moderator for New England and Energy & Environment, which get about 1/20th of the traffic as this forum.) I leave you in Audie's capable hands, soon to be augmented by others.

    It's been a great three years trying to herd cats here and learning a lot from you all. Keep up the civil exchange of hard ideas.

    Best wishes,
    Robert

    As you know, I've always enjoyed your level-headed and calming approach, Robert. You'll be missed in the wild west show we call 'Investment Forum'. Will your new job take you to my neck of the woods?

    Hey! How'd I get stuck with this lot all by myself?

    To all, fair warning: the next one I catch eye-gouging....and you may be tapped to be the next Mod, so watch out​!

    Congratulations on your new job!

    Thanks for your very significant impact to the general tone and quality of this board. After herding us ferals over here, obviously the only challenge left for you is to fix the economy once and for all. Whether that's what you'll be doing or not, I hope you'll still find time to post every now and then. I've always read your contributions with great interest.

    Thanks for keeping me from getting too wild here, Robert ;). Good luck with your new job.
    (BTW - who is the other cat?)

    Robert, it was quite an experience to participate here through some of most exuberant times for TSLA, and your calming presence/moderation was often essential to preserve some sanity. I appreciate your balanced, informed and respectful style, thank you for that.

    Now enjoy your new job, cheers, Auz

    You've done an outstanding job of allowing heated and needed debates on this thread whilst keeping it civil, not an easy task! Thank you for your efforts, they have been much appreciated.
