    Except that it isn't... we see a lot of dissent from that - we have had several members go so far as to say to "let the members sort it out themselves".

    Technically, the administration/owners are... they laid the rules by which we follow. The problem is, as they are not here for the day-to-day, they do not always see the challenges that arise

    No, the problem is you moderators don't follow the rules but expect everyone else to follow them.

    And, ignore them whenever you want to insult the members here.

    If I were so inclined to insult you, I would do so regardless of the consequences. The fact tgat I have not is simply my choice in the matter; were I to do so I would accept the consequences with grace. Something you seem incapable of doing.

    A few suggestions have been banded about. Ultimately, a stricter following of, and adherence to, the established rules would be required... the problem is that, as it stands, there is no easy way to start doing that without shell-shocking the community.

    Ok... but how about actualy followin the rules insted of "jus bein stricter"/(only follerin the rules when the mood strikes)... an get rid of rules that wont be consistently enforced.!!!

    Let it be known that the rules are gonna be enforced (no exceptions)... but have a grase period wit warnins... which let the person know what the moderation will be the nest time that rule is broken.!!!

    As long as the moderation is consistant... an done wit-out even a hint of smart-azz remarks... it will work... ie... posters an Mods will have a beter experience at Sciforums.!!!

    However, it is the only way the moderators can show the members here they are not hypocrites, they need to adhere to the rules themselves before they say anything to the members. If they started doing that, everything will be fine.

    Why not make a decision in your private forum to do so, create a thread announcing to everyone that the abuse and insults from moderators will stop immediately, and that everyone, including the mods, will have consequences to their actions?

    That alone will shell-shock the community.

    It should be very apparent by now which moderators need to go. The same names have been repeated by plenty of members for years now. Let's not feign ignorance on this, Stryder.

    So you don't want to hold moderators accountable because you're buddies with them? If that's the case, then you've forgotten what your purpose is.

    I'm all for moderator accountability. But the problem with this, as you say, goes deeper; James has rarely shown an interest in disciplining them, and I don't think Plazma is around enough to be of any help. So, again it comes to who holds the ability.

    I say leave it to the membership. That, of course, creates its own problems, but I think they're less consequential than leaving it to admins (absentee) or the mods themselves (conflict of interest).

    Again, though, all it would take is for you all to recognize that there are just one or two mods who need to go--who have needed to go for years--and pull the trigger on it. The forum would be immeasurably better for it.

    He means make it against the rules of the forum. And, as you well know, your speech at Sciforums is not protected by the Constitution.

    I mean, guys, can we all agree that there are one or two mods that everybody knows are troublemakers? Can we agree on that?

    Technically speaking, if I'm not mistaken, since we are a US Hosted website, we do still fall under US guidelines... I could be wrong though.

    You must know that the First Amendment doesn't protect private groups from setting guidelines for behavior, speech, and expression. I say you must because you just banned Q for running off at the mouth.

    C'mon, dude.
