Best Forum Moderator Is…

I asked you to nominate the best domain industry forum moderators, and you guys nominated five, and you then voted on the nominees. After the votes were tallied, there was only a difference of about 30 votes between the top vote getter and the final nominee.

I want to congratulate Donna Mahony of Domain Boardroom (a private domain forum) for receiving the most votes. I will send Donna a check for $200 for winning the vote.

Congratulations to all of the nominees, and a special congratulations to Donna. Being a moderator isn’t easy, but the job they do is appreciated by all of us who participate on domain forums.

If you want to learn more about Donna, you can check out an interview I posted a while ago.
