DPR is misguided
In reply to quadrox, Jun 24, 2013

In my opinion... (please NOTE I said 'IN MY OPINION')...

a: Moderators should NOT be allowed to post comments as regular USERS.

b: Every moderator should have TWO accounts. Their Moderator account, and a regular user account.

c: If logged in as a moderator, a moderator should MODERATE and not be allowed to post user comments.  If a mod wants to post comments, he/she MUST login as a regular user.

d: When logged in as a USER a moderator would NOT have any moderator powers and would not even be identified as a moderator.

e: No moderator should be allowed to moderate any thread in which he/she has posted as a user.

f: No thread/post should be deleted unless agreed to by admin. In other words, no moderator should have the power to delete a thread or post without approval of DPR admin.

g: No moderator should have the power to ban a user. Again, the banning of a user should require admin approval and NOT be the sole discression of a single moderator.

Unfortunately, DPR has become pablum for the masses, where only the lowest common denominator is acceptable.

This is misguided, in my opinion.

Since moderation has been introduced, DPR has become massively OVER MODERATED.  This is wrong and massively misguided.
