    I'm not trying to argue with you, a.g.a., just make clear why we moderate what and when we moderate since it seems people are not clear on that. I didn't realize that spending my time between work tasks here answering questions and correcting misconceptions would make it seem like I'm some ogre that spends all my energy oppressing people on the internet.

    LOL. Jaguar hates me. I mostly have him on ignore. However, sometimes I pay attention to the CONTENT of his posts, despite our personal history and his penchant for trolling, and I happen to agree with him here.

    No, my assertion is a much more literal one. It is that Person X can say "Fuck off" and there are no repercussions, Person Y can say "Fuck off" and get a warning, but Person Z says "You're an idiot" and gets a 1 week ban. Or corrects someone's spelling and gets a thread ban - based on erroneous assumptions about INTENT.

    Consistent? Based on CONTENT? No.

    This is the equivalent of sending dodgy food back/lodging a complaint.

    You're always starting threads asking for opinion/feedback in mock transparency, then telling people to STFU when you actually get it.

    Answering questions and sharing experience is great, imo, but exerting power often to squelch others' voices just because you (moderators) deem it so, is not so great, imo, even if those voices are abrasive. Having to learn to interact with all kinds of people, even more abrasive or verbally abusive people than me, is one of the reasons I actually like this forum.

    Aphrodite, I'm not sure why you're coming out of the gate the way you are. You've received no official warnings or infractions so any run-ins you've had with the madmins mere have been unofficial or member-to-member.

    What's interesting in that regard is I notice that I try not to give people "official" warnings, just brief PMs or nudges to knock something out. But you have gotten me wondering if it would be clearer to give the official warning so there's no confusion about the purpose of the communication. The more official warnings a person has, the more likely the next offense will result in an infraction and infractions accumulated within a certain amount of time lead to bans.

    What "our way or the highway" is there? Go look through the official decrees forum and feedback forum and see how often major forum changes have ALWAYS been put forth before members as a referendum. We have always solicited member input as far as major directional changes to the forum, hell to be honest, most of the forums I go to don't even have a "Feedback" section. Whenever a thread like this one occurs, it's always kept open and members freely respond however they see fit.

    If I wanted to overmoderate I would've thrown this very thread in the Graveyard and locked it so no one could respond. You're standing on the very platform that allows you to deride how moderation occurs.

    I don't believe there is overmoderation at this forum. There are people who don't like any moderation because they hold the juvenile mindset of they should be able to say whatever they want, when they want to do it. There are also very specific and vocal members who have been moderated spewing sour grapes because they've been reprimanded.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
