View Full Version : TSD needs chat hosts, board moderators


05-14-1999, 11:18 AM
What with growing traffic on our Web message board and the usual turnover, the Straight Dope needs chat hosts and board moderators. Interested parties should write to tubadiva@aol.com for an application. You must be over 18. A fast computer and modem, a steady head, and lots of free time are big pluses. Not to mention the patience of a saint.

Are these paying jobs?

Cheese, you'd be in the forefront of the battle against ignorance. All the glory you'd want. Spiffy uniforms too.

Yes, but...are these paying jobs? I can't buy cheesy-poofs with glory!

No. Cecil squeaks by, he gives Li'l Ed a pittance, and there aint nothin' left for Li'l Ed to pass on except the thrill of taking up a stance against ignorance. Oh, and free copies of the Chicago READER.

You mean I was supposed to be dressed during all those chats?!

How about a hat or a coffee mug to feel official? Do we have to be sober?

I would say sobriety could work against you.

ps -- I want a hat, too.

If you throw in a complimentary Official SD Dodge Viper, I'll do it.

If they threw in the offical snack food of Straight Dopers (would that be an oxymoron?) I'd do it.

(but my key board would be orange.)

Aw, come on -- Circus Peanuts don't leave that much residue.

Oh, man, Circus Peanuts make my teeth hurt just thinking about them. And I don't even have any fillings.

I have LOTS of fillings, and my teeth have never hurt due to eating a Circus Peanut. My stomach, perhaps, after a large Circus Peanut binge, but never my teeth.
