I just want to offer my thanks for the job of moderating you’ve done in the years I’ve been reading Qt3. This forum is one of my examples of moderating done very well: a light enough hand to avoid suppressing interesting people, while still not letting the place dissolve into chaos. Moderation is a thankless job, and you’ve done a great job at it.
I think the tapir jokes are there because the thought of a tapir being obscene is inherently hilarious. It’s like Hitchhiker’s, where making “Belgium” the most obscene word in the galaxy is a million times more funny than “fuck” or whatever it was in the original UK edition. People don’t (usually) say “tapir” as a way of doing a wink-wink nudge-nudge end run around the local posting rules; they say it because it’s amusing. (Sort of like, “Oh, fudgesicles!” Only much, much funnier.)
Anyway, it sounds like you’re burned out on moderating. Take a vacation. You’ve earned it! :>
(And I second the hope that you’ll appoint some additional moderators if you don’t want to be bothered any more; Qt3 is a great community, and it’d be a real shame for it to die out from neglect.)
