i'm very fond of badger as a personal friend, but don't think the history of his actions on this board make him suitable to be moderator.
Oh and Chai Guy as someone to consider whenever consideration is considered.
Some of the more effective moderator actions are done off-line in PMs. If someone gets called to the carpet over their behavior, it can be less embarrassing and involve less drama if those actions are taken away from public view.
Falls in with Trey's comment "agreed that moderators should achieve as much as possible by way of persuasion and finagling, and should probably be chosen for their ability to do so and reluctance to resort to other measures"
i wonder if moderators wouldn't prefer to remain anonymous (ie, have different login for their moderator self) that would allow them to also participate in their own conversational way without the baggage of the title of moderator.

let the board run for a while, learn what's working, see what (if anything), and then add moderation
