The MOB Roll



MOB Membership Rules

How to become a member:

1. Attend an official MOB event. So far there have been several such affairs (yes, I'm counting the State Fair beer garden gathering) and more will be planed in the future. If you have show up at one of these events, membership status is automatically conferred.

2. Attend a Thursday night trivia contest at Keegan's Irish Pub and introduce yourself to one of the Northern Alliance reps, you are automatically admitted to the MOB.

3. Petition one of the Northern Alliance blogs to grant you membership. Saint Paul from Fraters Libertas is credited with coming up with the original concept of the MOB. It has since been picked up and promoted by the Northern Alliance of Blogs. Thus, the various Northern Alliance blogs have become the custodians of the MOB (Mitch usually ends up mopping up). Drop any of the Northern Alliance members a note expressing your interest in joining the MOB. After a thorough vetting process, involving criminal background checks, retinal scans, and psychological screening, they will either confirm or deny your request.

All  requests for membership must be submitted by the blogger who wishes to be admitted. We've been a little lax in this area in the past, but from now on we will not accept third party applications.

If you submit an application for membership to one of the Northern Alliance blogs via e-mail and are accepted into the MOB, you MUST attend a future MOB event to maintain your status. In other words, being accepted into the MOB is contingent on attendance at an upcoming MOB event.

4. Membership in the MOB is a privilege not a right. If you comport yourself in a manner that the MOB leadership deems inappropriate, your membership can be revoked at any times. All decisions in such areas are final and not subject to appeal no matter how arbitrary and capricious they may be.
