Re: Moderator Note : For the record

You appreciate that I'm not going to be drawn into specifics.

I'm simply acknowledging that actions have been taken by moderators rather than leaving the impression that none are.

There is always going to be a gray area where moderators regard something as being too a rule breach and posters regard it as being fine. Moderators, however, make the decision. That's just how it works. The correct way for any member who feels wronged by any decision to try and correct that is to use Feedback to contact the Administrators. Strangely some people refuse to do this. That's their problem, not ours. A few people have tried to make it our problem. There's only going to be one looser in such a fight. That's just common sense.

The word is actually spelled, "LOSER". I would suggest that the plural is here arguably applicable.

Thankfully the vast majority of members don't even experience moderator action, and most of those that do are reasonable - unhappy, but reasonable.

That the manufacture of consent is capable of great refinements no one, I think, denies. The process by which public opinions arise is certainly no less intricate than it has appeared in these pages, and the opportunities for manipulation open to anyone who understands the process are plain enough.
