    I tend to agree with Notmyrealname on this. A Moderator has a fine line to follow and must be impartial in making decisions such as this and that quoted reply, in my opinion, falls short of what is expected. I also wonder who is responsible to who? If there is more than one Moderator? It is clear here that is the case! Who has control of the Moderators? Is there a senior Moderator who can moderate the moderators?

    I see, so there are two Administrators and one Moderator?

    I think he is referring to the word 'childish', we all get a laugh or two out of many posts, but we don't refer to them as childish.

    Technically there is one "super admin" (server/database, main site and forum level), one forum admin, and one global moderator.

    Well said, rest assured your not alone in having posts deleted. One of the reasons it's not often I bother with this forum. The some power above do not agree with your comments nobody will ever have chance to read them

    Come on everybody, this is just a forum. You need to stop letting it rule your lives; the admins live in your minds 24/7, not by their choice I am sure. II guess the long periods of quarantine may have something to do with people’s unnatural attention to forum “governance”. Give it a break; you will live happier lives if you do.

    And we cannot read comments by those who felt badly treated in the past because they don't post anything now!

    This Forum, and the whole site, is excellent - whatever happens I will not change my opinion on that - but my recent 'discussion' here has shown the cracks.

    So there must be a special moderators' language that the rest of us don't use. :smile:

    But in another thread you stated there is a log of moderators' actions.

    I understand why it is very difficult for mod to criticise mod - even the police look after their colleagues as the number one priority.
