I received the following press release in my mailbox today,
about 10 seconds before deleting my account on their website.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Michael Jacobus, N4DIA (once known as “Secret Squirrel”) has been recruited to be a moderator for Ham Radio Talk. We observed his responsiveness on QRZ and decided he would help keep our promise to maintain a high signal-to-noise ratio. We also liked how he was able to keep smut and obscenity out of the QRZ Forums when the members of HamSexy invaded the QRZ Forums. They were swiftly and decisively dealt with in what we feel to be an appropriate manner. Some collateral damage was necessary in order to regain control of the QRZ Forums. We look forward to having same quality moderation on HRT as QRZ had durning N4DIA’s tenure at QRZ.
His moderation duties begin effectively at 0700 UTC today.
