These are good people who did not ask to be Mods .
They were proposed by fellow mods who have witnessed and appreciate their contributions as regular CS'ers.
They understand the (sometimes) thankless burden that falls on their shoulders by accepting this responsibility.
They have consistently demonstrated a willingness to go that extra mile with help NOT ONLY in the forum but also helping out, organizing and leading (for example and BY example ) actual activities for the good of the community (especially with the Newbies) without expecting anything back in return
(not to mention the number of weekends and Friday nights burned to help in running these activities for CS'ers)
Those who know them on a personal basis will (I'm sure) vouch positively for them
