  • The cat is back!!!

    Howdy Folks, As you will notice from the lack of advertising in my post, I have been freed from the restraints of being a moderator. Well, lets say, I just got my resignation in, before the bullet was fired. As those of you whom I speak privately with already know, I have been highly frustrated with the role and I have been considering resigning for some time. I do not have to explicitly state here what the issues were, as most of you that are long term members already have a good inkling of what they are anyway, but I thought naively that I could drive change from within, not just for the betterment of the community and PSO but PokerStars as well. I took up the position because I believed I had something to offer, the small monetary compensation was really meaningless to me (as Moxie pointed out a few times, I have a very comfortable life) I would gladly have done it for nothing. What was especially gratifying was the number of people that told me the good job that I was doing and that really humbled me. I have had the good fortune to work for many companies, from small start ups that became hugely successful to giant multinationals. I always had respect for all people whether it was the CEO or the cleaning lady, but either could lose that respect and the respect had to be mutual and not demanded. If something was not being managed or run in the correct way, I always made my opinion heard and although maybe everyone did not always agree with my opinion, it was always listened to and respected and in the majority of occasions implemented, because anyone that knew me, knew that I was doing the best for the organizations that I was part of. It is unfortunate that some people mix/confuse respect with blind submission, and blind submission only creates robots who leave their hearts and minds at the company gate. If you are not free to express your opinion and critique what you believe to be wrong, then in effect you are surrendering your right to be a free human being, and I for one will never give that up. Cheers, TCumbup:
