The liquid you have to soak up with some paper towels is the result of the proteins in the eggs getting too hot.

Agreed, Andy. I start scrambled eggs on med in a bit of butter, then lower the heat and stir gently when they start to set, but not too much stirring. My idea of perfect scrambled eggs is to have somewhat large chunks, delicate, and still shiny when they reach my plate.

I just want to add that when I fry up asian food, it's more flavorful when it has a chance to cool down a little.

I am aware, that's why I mentioned it. However, my eggs are still more moist than any cooked the low heat way that I've ever had, plus they are a heck of a lot fluffier.
