Alex never gave the mods power to ban anyone without his permission. The last time one of them decided to "knock a few heads together'' as he put it, Alex was mighty displeased. In fact the mod in question was forced to publicly apologize to the membership for doing what he did.


This is a bit fuzzy. First, there certainly is
a right to ban the obvious spammer. But,
there are other things which can be done
to really damage the site. Still, it has to
be something so obviously threatening to
warrant such action by a mod.

What's the point of having a mod if they can't take action against posts that they deem offensive?


Uhm, to protect the site from REAL threats?
But yes, the mods do have some responsibilities,
it's just supposed to be a very light touch, as Alex
has been burned by bad decisions by mods before,
AFAIK

Alex indeed has the final say but I can't see that Quatermass is doing anything wrong with stating his rules. He isn't threatening to ban people - just telling them to watch what they post.


You know, I'd pretty much agree that this is
a good policy (though the execution was a bit
arrogant for my tastes), but for the fact that the
site owner has expressly told the mods NOT to engage
in such. Now, if this policy has changed, if the mods are
working as a good unit, with utmost trust and respect for
one another, and these decisions are carefully weighed,
and written, so as to cause LESS trouble than the problems
they seek to eliminate, it might just work.

However, I think that Alex has had some experience here
which has led him to believe that aspies simply don't like such
authority, and intrinsically rebel against it. Oh, not all - but
enough that reasonable liberties should be allowed. Again,
maybe I'm being conceited in thinking that cleverly worded
statements could defuse situations better - but do remember
that the mods are neither paid, nor selected for any particular
talent in such matters. So, it is no wonder that sometimes their
wording is such to anger - and not in the correct manner.

I don't like people using authority and bully boy tactics on me either but still can't see anything objectionable in what Quatermass has posted here.

He tells me that kind of s**t regularly, ESPECIALLY when
I'm complaining about misuse of power issues. I find this
(at least) more honest than the general attitude of personal
attacks which another mod here has resorted to. But, hey,
there's a cost to being right.

You know, I understand your problem with
Mr. Mark, but he earned a lot of my respect
when he admitted that he was wrong.
