You can do both. Considering you have no qualms banning offenders that are regular members, bans should be extended to offending moderators, as well as the implementation of a new system that will keep moderators in check, and make the rules easier for everyone to follow. Your primary objective here, as always, seems to be finding excuses not to hold moderators accountable. This needs to change. You sound like a mouthpiece for the cabal rather than a sensible go-between.
