It is said that "absolute power corrupts absolutely", but we are just talking about moderation on a small discussion group in a photo website.

I'm just glad to see an end (hopefully) to long threads full of post after post containing nothing but interpersonal conflict crap. I think we can all agree that sort of thing is just a waste of time.

Somebody has to step up to do this dirty work and I am glad somebody did step up. This is an equipment and technical and user experience forum and extraneous stuff ought to be kept out of it. So call me a moderator fanboy, but I approve of the idea of moderation.

Moderation itself is usually good and needed, but Roland complained (and IMO rightly) about draconian rule about discussing moderation actions.

What about long flamewars - these are often very interesting to read
