Say hello to our new MIR Team!

This discussion thread was locked by Skinner (a host of the Announcements group).

The job of the Malicious Intruder Removal Team is to ban people who join DU with the intent to disrupt. MIR Team members are volunteers, and they serve for a three-month term. The members serving on the current team were selected on a first-come-first-served basis. (Note that we do not select anyone whose Transparency page is displayed.)

If you are a member of the MIR Team, you should have access to the access-restricted Malicious Intruder Removal Forum. It should appear as a red folder on your Forums & Groups page, and in the left column of any page (if you view DU in "Standard" mode).

Thank you to everyone who volunteered!

10. Major plaudits to the retiring and returning volunteers.

You've had to serve above and beyond the call of duty during this last session.

"KEEPING DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND SAFE FOR DEMOCRACY".

15. Color me embarrassed.

I got mail in My Inbox from MIR Team Skinner.
I didn't know what to make of it.
So like a responsible DUer, I PMed Skinner back thinking it was a mistake.
He answered me with a link to this thread.


So here I am . . .

21. Thank you and Welcome!

Those retiring thanks so much. Those that did two tours really had an interesting ride.

Newbies welcome! Takes a week or so but you'll be fine.

Those staying on for round two, I do hope you have a quieter time.

22. Well, you know, Paulie, that part of you wishes for quieter times....

but in reality, the buzz about being on MIRT is the action of doing what we do!

A spin through MIRT should be on the bucket list of all DUers.....really eye opening!

23. Busy is good, buried is something else.

20 a day lets a MIRt-er play. 100 a day starts to seem like a career.

27. Something about "Cas Lee" from what I recall.

Heh, we only talked maybe once or twice, TBH. In fact, I only remembered this, like, yesterday.
