I invoke Alpha-rules for this thread. Several of the moderators, James R, (Q), and avatar have been very naughty lately and seem to be spending most of their time baiting and trolling members to elicit negative responses. I have reported at least 20 offending posts and have received absolutely no feedback on the disciplinary actions taken against these offenders. 1. Sciforums is an Internet community that, foremost and among other things, values intelligent discussion, scientific method, critical thinking and sound reasoning. 5. Sciforums is run and managed by a team of administrators and moderators who: 5.1. act in accordance with this policy; 5.4. take action to enforce and promote this policy among the members of the community. Clearly moderators that insult are violating the rules and not acting in accordance with the sciforums policy. Moreover they do exactly the opposite of enforcing and promotong this policy among members of the community. They are constantly trying to elicit negative responses and abuse their powers to get away with it. Moreover, ignoring valid reports (we have all seen the insults and we can still see them because they are still there) clearly promotes only anarchy and sets ill blood. It has become clear that the moderator team has failed time after time to clean their own house and this has led to setting a standard that seems to be in straight contradiction with the rethoric spewing from the mouths of the administration and moderators.
