I’m sorry, but I find it hard to believe this is a coincidence, especially after a couple years ago when I called out another then-moderator who was consistently violating the ToS and this specific moderator (that I’m complaining about) let me know it was inappropriate to complain about staff. Really? I thought the purpose of a volunteer committee was to keep the forums clean, not to appease one’s ego. Reality is, if you’re violating the ToS, regardless of who you are, you should be punished. I applaud eveybody who donates their time to this community, whether it’s moderators or users like myself flagging posts to keep it clean. I know what I bill for my time at my day job .
But it’s disheartening to watch those who care about the community get punished because somebody’s having an ego trip. From this day forward, I will no longer flag posts - let the kids play in the sandbox and have their fun.
