When I was asked to become a moderator on ACL, I had mixed feelings. At the time it seemed unfair to Eddy that he was the only active moderator, so I was happy to help weed out the spam and do other minor duties. The thought of me being perceived as a vendor in the full commercial sense did concern me, however Phil assured me that he did not see a problem. After a long conversation with him I accepted the moderator position, but on the terms that if I no longer felt comfortable with it, or ACL seemed to be suffering from any perceived conflict of interest I'd resume my role as a regular ACL member. I feel that I have done my best to explain my position over recent days, but it has become clear that the best course of action (for ACL) is for me to step aside as moderator. I thank all of you that have supported me. I will continue to support ACL with projects and general help. I will also continue to learn from other members here. That's the great thing about ACL. The members have such a diverse range of skills and knowledge. Who replaces me (in due course) as moderator is another matter. I will have no say in it as it would be done after I step down.
