    @ Clueless.
    You could give infractions for correct spelling.

    Mostly, the moderators are happy to let other mods do their jobs without second-guessing everything every other mod does. That's how most workplaces go, if you think about it.

    I used to moderate the Astronomy forum and only moderated posts of religious nature, offering only simple warnings to folks who posted them there. I don't believe I ever banned anyone, imsc.

    The best forums are those least moderated.

    Sometimes i wonder if the "payoff" for some mods to do this job is... a joy for the busy-work of endlessly perfectin an addin to the rules... an the drama in the mod forum... which even spills into the open forum on occasion.!!!

    "Keep it simple stoopid"

    Sciforums seems bogged down by mountains of rules... which only seems to necessitate more rules... ect... ect.!!!
    I thank a goal for the forum shoud be arrived at... which certainly includes regular poster satisfaction/sense of fairness... an then the simplest plan of action that requires the least amount of moderation to acheive that goal shoud be arrived at... as the way to go for the betterment of Sciforums.!!!

    It has become a farce here, with moderators behaving far worse than the members they ban.

    Notice how easy it is for you to insult people and get away with it, now that your part of the elite, above the rules.

    I can almost hear your hands wringing in delight.

    The more a mod is respected the less ther moderation will be questoned or needed... ie... more time an energy for the discusson of issues... insted of so much time wasted on the "forum" bein the issue.!!!

    Along wit mods bein respectful in ther duties... any name callin... such as "Troll"... is not the way to go.!!!

    No one was called a troll. Trolls are a common problem on internet forums, and moderation is the common solution.

    lol


    And when a moderator cannot stand any more, is that when their ego takes hold of their moderating capacities?

    Yes yes... it is far too easy. Which is probably the next target for this site... to extinguish the clique and replace with the neat.

    It isn't that easy.
    There is also the issue of free speech.
    Take for example the issue of abortion, which always causes trouble.
    The following are not actual quotes.
    Poster "A" thinks people who have the procedure, or support it, are clearly "murderers".
    Poster "B" thinks that poster "A" is clearly "a woman hating fascist" and has a "medieval mindset"
    Should they be allowed to express their opinions or not?

    He wasn't speaking as a mod.
    Aside from that, when mods are dealing with trolls they can call them trolls.
