It's Steve's birthday!

For those who don't know, Steve has been a volunteer for LiveJournal for a long, long time... and despite being very talented and able to do just about anything in life that he puts his mind to, he has taken on the task of LiveJournal Abuse and overseeing the Terms of Service with great care and admirable tact and restraint.

Personally, the work he does is greatly underappreciated at LiveJournal. He spends a great deal of time and energy mediating disputes between users and getting them to deescalate from situations that cause TOS violations, uses a lot of restraint in interpreting the Terms of Service to provide protection for free speech... but he acts quickly and decisively if serious abusive behavior occurs.

Without his efforts, Brad and/or I would risk nervous breakdowns from dealing with all the abuse issues, or stalking/abuse would run amok and all of you would have nobody to turn to for help.

Happy birthday, Steve. I, for one, am glad you're out there...
