Why are most mods living in the Basel area?

It caught my attention.

Would it be:
- coincidence
- the water of the Rhine having a positive impact on moderating skills
- be the proof that moderating an internet forum is the only exciting thing to do when living in Basel (the Zurich point of view)

Swings and roundabouts.

There used to be a much heavier Zurich bias.

But it just goes to show that quality will come to top...

Anyway, what about sharing your data. The only Basel-based mods I know are Castro and Mirfield. 22 yards is BL, so that counts too. But who else?

Re: Why are most mods living in the Basel area?

It was generally found that mods from other areas, like Zrich, were more prone to despair, insanity and/or nits, which impacted their ability to moderate properly.

Some of us do, that's why it would be such fun to see you in the job. Light blue touch paper and retire immediately......
