*ESPECIALLY* since most woodworkers have had a "Thor thumb" at one time
or another -- usually as a _direct_ result of the hammer.
what's the old saying "He hit the nail right on the thumb" ?
Not only do I not agree that we need a moderator, you couldn't
moderate this group if you wanted to! Usenet has rules and you can't
convert a non-moderated group to a moderated one.
You'd have to have a new group created, probably
rec.woodworking.moderated, and there are more hoops and votes and
nonsense to jump through to get that to happen than is at all likely
to happen. You need to find several moderators, and then hope that
anyone from rec.woodworking will actually post to
rec.woodworking.moderated, which is unlikely.
It's easier for you to just learn how to use a killfile on your own.
You could do this at one time. rec.bicycles.off-road was converted
to a moderated group because of one troublemaker who could not
follow the rules, started endless arguments about the impact of
mountain bikes, would not listen to reasoned counter-arguments, etc.
It was a royal pain to convert rec.bicycles.off-road. I don't
think anyone really wants to spearhead changing this group or
making a new one.

No... spam, trolls, etc., are annoying but so are moderators that aren't
on-line 24/7, or who feel compelled to add tag-lines or commentary to
everything crossing the group, or who burn up bandwidth nagging everyone
about message formatting and etiquette. ;-)
