In the real world people in positions of authority over others are held to a higher standard than those they are in authority over. Meaning they are expected to uphold the standards they are enforcing at all times. A police officer is expected at all times, on duty or off, to exhibit self control and strict obedience of the law. Granted, moderators are not paid police officers, and they are as human as the rest of us. But I still feel if they are not able and willing to uphold the rules they are enforcing and consistently demonstrate the correct way of behaving on the forums then they should step down as Moderators. If they are not willing, then they should be forcibly stripped of their position. Bells has consistently exhibited an inclination to engage other posters in flame wars. Whether other posters are at fault or not she should remain in a state of self control and not respond to flaming with flaming. If she sees a flame attack she should simply put on the mod hat and take care of business in a professional manner. Not participate in the flaming outburst and only after she completely loses control decide to step back and threaten to moderate those with whom she is equally guilty of flaming. Why is this particular moderator allowed to get away with such behavior? It is detrimental to threads and the forum as a whole. She abuses her position and does not demonstrate the ability to objectively view a situation. She is blind to her own faults while seeking out like a laser guided missile the buttons on other posters to push in order to get them to lose face so that she claim she is innocent and therefore able to "justify" the character assassination that she instigates. She has done this to Neverfly (and probably others)and is attempting to now do it to me simply because I did not attack him as she did. I was not supporting his opinion only questioning the points she made in a thread. Yet she has subtly hinted that she will use her power against me now for simply disagreeing with her on some points, and I might point out that I also supported some of her claims in the same thread, and for not joining in her attack on Neverfly.
