Anne has left the site and is no longer a moderator. I am sad to see her leave and I wish her all the best in whatever new endeavors she pursues.
Regarding change, it is inevitable and everything changes. Cruisemates will continue to change, grow and evolve to better serve our overall reader community.
At some point just about everyone involved will leave, other people will come on board and perhaps a few will be around as long as the site is here. People have lives and have to live them and they can't let a business or message board rule them.
