Answer key: If you chose mostly a’s, b’s, or d’s, then you have every one of my unremarkable qualities, and you’d make a completely ineffective and disruptive HazzardNet Moderator. Yeeehaaw!

If you chose mostly c’s and e’s, then you have MaryAnne’s outstanding qualities and you’d be a great HazzardNet Moderator! Sal-ute!

If your answers are a mixed bag, then your temperament would make you a great Webmaster! Woohoo!

Disclaimer: The questions in this quiz are completely hypothetical as are the answers, and in no way should they be taken too seriously or be used as an accurate depiction of HazzardNet.com, which certainly makes no claims, warranties, or promises concerning what the hell we’d do in any given situation from one minute to the next. Void where prohibited. Discontinue use if irritation persists.
