During a political election it's usually incumbent on the civil servants to be fairly neutral in their views.
Should our existing mod team exhibit the same neutrality (other than applying a guiding hand regarding content, manner, disposition and rules) and not post possibly influential comments such as:
++ So this is what your tweet about SO Careers being so wonderful was all about, eh? Haha. All politics. Either way, you've got my vote! – xxxx♦ 15 hours ago
+1 for the pornstar name – xxxx♦ 2 hours ago
A++++++++++++++++++++++ would vote again. – xxxx♦
I'll vote if you can do something with the overall awful quality of iPhone dev questions.damn that was snarky. But I do think it would be a good thing to have an iPhone dev on the mod team. – xxxx♦
@Nick Craver: Is there time for me to get in a rousing endorsement for this Justin Nels fellow? (see history) – xxxxxx♦
Even if they're not, these could be construed as endorsements.
Just a thought.
