At the end of the day members of any forum/chat site have to realise that moderators are only human beings too. They take the role because they want to help and majority of sites do not renumerate their moderators. Whilst you can always get a bad apple every now and again that purely want the power that comes with it the majority genuinely do it because they like the feeling you get knowing that you've helped someone.

Moderating 100% the same way is impossible on a site. I used to be a high level moderator on a family chat site for a number of years and was well known for taking my time with individual members pointing out how they've broken the rules and why those rules exist in the first place. Others simply slapped bans on members who were seen to be doing wrong without explanation. In doing that you alienate people. In theory the banning etc was within the rules as members had broken them but taking the time to explain why they exist forge a better relationship with members. When a site is run well then members should not fear the moderators but consider them helping friends that know the site/rules better than other members.

i dont think there is any fear of the moderators......they arent the police!

just inconsistencies

All seemingly random though, I posted on the Play.com MJ deals, reached about 700 degrees then got deleted for seemingly no reason, now there are a few more MJ posts that are surviving.

Mods probably thinking how to delete you and this thread
