    I second Eklektikos.

    Goonie hopes 40J finds a new job, and that a sympathiser to my CoS proposal wins. No offense 40J. You are pretty cool. *except when you get in my way ;)*

    Thanks Octavian. For now mark me as accepted.

    I know I'm not supposed to run for two positions, but I will decide when debates are up. It is usually my practice to accept two nominations then decline one depending on how things play out. This has worked in the past and I hope people don't mind me doing it now and in the future.

    I am honored that there are some people who apparently feel that I have done a good enough job to warrant re-election, but I will decline my nomination for this position.

    I do not wish to turn this into a discussion thread on the dangers of excessive passage of new legislation, as that is better left for the debates. However, I fear that we are dedicating too much of our efforts on creating new laws that restrict, or "define", what can and cannot be done in the chats and forums. I sincerely hope that we, as a nation, can redirect our efforts into more positive and constructive efforts.

    Alas, with my new mod responsibilities, I am finding it difficult to keep abreast of routine DG matters, let alone serve as Chief Justice. Much as I appreciate the honor accorded me by this nomination, I am afraid I must Decline. :(
