I can think of at at least one current moderator who is great at taking all the comments, feedback from webmasters and his own in-depth knowledge of Google Algo and writing posts that help us understand what is going on , but often if a very busy thread E.G. Caffiene Mayday updates his words of wisdom are lost in the noise, could webmaster world set up blogs for these well respected moderators where they could be sure their words of wisdom were not lost in the either.
I also believe they should be able to monetize those blogs for themselves , words of wisdom deserve recompense.
The reason I say this is I had great respect for a moderator who has since left that helped many webmasters when adsense was still young and in it's infancy , she was able to look at the changes and make them quick and easy to understand .
Just a suggestion
