Pretty much by chance, I noticed that Bob has recently retired as a moderator.

We have been interacting (on and off) since 2005 and whilst our musical preferences were very different, I always admired his skills of diplomacy. Walking his tightrope well under testing circumstances, he was a great asset to PA.

Well, I am the opposite and my blunt and outspoken nature saw me being dumped as a Special Collaborator some years ago. Now as a "newbie" under a different name  I still make my contribution from the sidelines and Bob had been very supportive to that regardless of musical differences.

Frankly, I am surprised that I haven't been able to unearth a single thread thanking Bob for a nearly decade long service to PA.  If you care, put your hands together as a sign of appreciation and respect to a devoted, long-time and tireless worker as a farewell gesture.       .ClapClapClap 

Over to you folks.

^ There's a Retired Admin thread in the Collab Zone, but nice of you to post.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like Bob.   That's quite an accomplishment.

I haven't been privy to the Collab Zone in years.
Would it be reasonable to ask that the masses to be informed, not just the insiders?

Bob had been a great asset, surely worth of respect beyond just the closed doors of the " elite" on PA?

Bob may be a quiet and humble guy.   But you just informed the masses, so there you have it.

Ah, great! So I am now in charge of the masses?
I'd rather leave that to politicians....

Might I also say Bob is a terrific music journalist, with few as vastly knowledgeable.

I only asked for a tribute on Bob's behalf - accessible to all.
Surely, that's not to difficult?

See why I got kicked out of the Collabs fraternity?
I don't take crap. Period.

Thanks for all the good work, Bob! Clap
And your (many) reviews are often also quite interesting.

I might like to add that to his credit, Bob did contribute to Forums beyond being a moderator.
Only a select few of Collabs ever bother relating to "foot soldiers (the majority!) by acknowledging their existence and partaking in discussions - not from behind closed doors.. 

Bob was not acting out of ego, but of service.

Happy to pass on my appreciation for his hard work. Thanks Bob
Always hoped to meet him in the flesh given that we both live in the same town. Funny thing by best mate is also  a Uriah Heep fan so we really should get together and have a pint!

Any man/woman who contributes to the site as much as Bob has I have nothing but respect and gratitude for all the hard work. PA has been a pleasure for me. Exceptional database.

So you finally made enough money from all your hard work on the site in order to live a comfortable retirement. Well done. Wink

In all seriousness, thanks for your contribution. Clap
