i fail to see what or who this blog is aimed at. 90% of the most recent locked topics were just threads that had been posted in the wrong message board and therefore moved to the correct board and left unlocked.
The entire moderator staff is in agreement that treating members with general courtesy and respect is a necessity and should go without saying. However, i feel this blog is way out of line. A moderator will lock a topic through his/her own discretion and is not obligated to post in said topic and give any kind of explanation as to why it was locked. Why? because the administrators of this site appointed its moderators placing complete trust in their(mods) judgment on said issues, hence the concept of moderator discretion.
Although this blog is worded in general terms, it seems to be angled at something specific. Everyone reading this should take the following statements into account very carefully...If you have a problem with how the moderators operate, take it up with the higher power. Contact one of the administrators with your quarry and it will be handled in a civil manner. Posting such issues publicly is asking for trouble, weather you are right or not, the community here has no involvement in how the mods work. the founders are the only people who make our rules.
