Dru is right; why does someone want to be a politician in the first place? It's a power thing
That being said, in my view site does need light moderation. Most of the time it is ok as it is, but every once awhile (more often at rain periods, when people are edgy) things go a little crazy and it really hurts the site. My vote would be for 3 long time members that could split the duty, perhaps along following lines:
Dru - tongue in cheek, cut the crap in root --> Lodge discussions, eliminate redundancy (i.e 100 separate Wedge/Joffre Lakes/Panorama threads in a month, etc)
simonc - Knows coast better than anyone. General TR validity and integrity (as this is flagship forum) Redirect posts wrongly posted in TR forum, etc.
Aqua Terra - General. Images (no memory card dumps). Friendly, diplomatic, cares about the site
Alberta side doesn't really need any moderation as it is much less busy.
