I'm not the biggest /u/she fan but until we can talk about it like sensible and reasonable adults, I don't want to be part of it.

/u/she is a human and regardless of what you think of her skills and objectivity as a moderator /u/she does not deserve the level of sick and vile harassment they have gotten.

I apologise for any horrible things I may have said, and I hope others see reason soon, too.

Grasp some perspective.

1) Enough with the martyr story. Mods, by the very nature of their work, must put themselves out there and be open to public scrutiny. @She knew(or, rather, should have known) this when requesting to become a mod. Intelligent users separate mod accounts from their personal posting accounts for this very reason. A mod account should only be used for official moderation in the subverse absolutely not as a form of super user account for regular posting and the building of a larger web identity. If @she had done this, there would be no real issue with harassment, imagined or otherwise. We don't live in the 90's anymore and no one should have to be told what has become common sense. A mod should do his/her work, post a very concise(not open to interpretation) explanation for their actions, and move on.

2) Don't apologize for other people. It's a cheap maneuver, and we as a community should strive to be above that. A user can only be only responsible for his/her own actions and we should all know that by now.

3) Read, and encourage others to read, the mod logs and do some simple research before forming opinions on the actions of moderators, rogue or otherwise. Part of being a "sensible and reasonable adult" is recognizing that users on forums do not speak with the one voice and that the short-sighted, emotionally charged posts of a number of users do not mean that others are not having thoughtful and civilized discussion. If you want to handle a subject with maturity, then I suggest you begin by participating in mature discussion rather than crossing your arms and calling everyone in the room children.

  1. Death threats are never justified. Especially over how an online message board is moderated.

  2. I only apologised for myself.

  3. I have and do.

Even tho your intentions might be ok, your approach is counterproductive.

@she did not create the question mark rule

Who is the judge?

We are human beings too, it goes both ways. Every time she fucks somebody over, that somebody is a human being.

I agree with everything you have said.

But it has no relevance to this thread. /u/she is not immune to criticism, and this thread was created specifically to take a critical look at /u/she 's actions as a moderator.
