2005-01-09, Daniel P. Beckmann. Official Statement from the Moderator on the instigations of Dr. Yarrum: will celebrate its three-year anniversary at the end of this month. Throughout all of that time there has been one person who has always wondered what was going on with tomarken, was it going to rise again? Did he see a sputter of activity? You could always trust him to interact with every part of this site-his responses were so many I haven’t even put up half of them yet. I don’t exactly know if it was a generational thing or what happens to people when they get old, but Dr. Yarrum kept track of things, and often wondered why others didn’t do the same.

As so many regimes have been known to do, and as our town elders have so advised, tomarken wishes to provide a vent for which the community can safely voice its anger without bringing down the whole damn thing. We have already provided to forum, but no…that’s too participatory, so what we are now going to do is bring in someone who will be that loud-mouth talk radio style voice that will carry out your bitches on your behalf. Meet Cristina Ellisson, the Moderator of the Public. While we’re at it, yes others do this too, but hold on a second there Ms. Ellisson, while the structure may be taken by example, the content certain will swipe unique in accordance with implicit doctrine.
