Jason IS a nice guy, aren't you concerned with a conflict of interest having a sponsor as a moderator?
We did think about that. Jason was an active member on the forum long before he became an advertiser, and there doesn't seem to be any inherent conflict of interest that he has with any other advertiser (i.e., he's not in competition with other advertisers), and we think that he's a reasonable enough person to recuse himself from any decision where there may be a conflict of interest. Obviously, we'll see how it goes, but we don't anticipate any problems. Jason has always been a trustworthy character on the forum, and we don't expect that to change in his new role as moderator.
