    ...To the moderators (cheesy, I know).

    As with any large event, and especially with an international one. The boards become belligerent and busy. National pride is thrown around and rivalries lead to poor posts. I had a thread closed because I was annoyed with posts in the GDT and when I went to look to report those posts (After CanuckleHead put me in my place) I found they'd all already been moderated.

    I think we all should thank the moderators, who do an amazing job every day, for their efforts during this tournament.

    And I personally would like to apologize for my thread. Happily my only moderated post of the tournament (I'm getting better!).

    I hope people don't look at this as sucking up, I don't mean to do that. Just merely thank them for their hard work which so often unnoticed, and apologize for adding to that work.

    Edit: How many people thought this might be a troll thread about refs or something? :P

    i agree. I have no authority on this board, so as an observer the work of the mods has been amazing. Nationalistic pride has a tendency to bring out the worst of people, and the mods have done a great job of keeping this forum readable. Special thanks to systemfel for all the great GDTs.

    It's not an international hockey tournament without rampant accusations of national atrocities dating back to World War II.
