There was no pressure from anybody to have a female moderator. There was no "whining that there aren't enough Linux chicks".

Number of posts and longevity are not the sole characteristics sought when we look for new moderators. Because somebody is asked to be a moderator does not mean that they are more highly valued than other people. There are several long-time very valuable posters to the forums that have been considered to become moderators, but we ended up eventually not asking them, because we felt that the forums would sacrifice some of their other contributions. For example, if we have a networking wizard that answers hundreds of arcane complicated posts in the Networking & Security forum, it's better for the forums that they do that rather than do moderator stuff.

This was not a case of affirmative action. Brandy has unequivocally demonstrated both in her postings in the forums and on IRC that she has technical knowledge, the ability to express herself clearly, and the personality traits suitable to being a good moderator. One of which is the ability to read threads like this without losing her temper.
