Re: About moderation - Feedback

I think that introducing moderators has brought a lot of good.  On one forum the abusiveness, offensiveness, and sheer verbal brutality by one individual was uncalled for.  Pulling threads, removing segments of threads, etc., did nothing to slow this individual.  This individual picked on people who turned out not to have thick skins and weren't picking on anyone--they were here to learn, but were devastated by the abusive and derisory comments.  Even bans did not help.

So, in short, moderators have brought a degree of civility that has been welcomed.

I will say that what I disliked is deleting threads or segments of thread because we now lack the evidence to prove our points of such action.  Websites, in one sense, are modern archives.
