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.

1.) The issue is not justification and the fact that you thought my first point was about justification should reveal your own bias. Step back and reread what was written.

2.) Fair enough.

3. You are entitled to your opinion, however, if you had, in fact, taken the time to review the situation that we now find ourselves in you would see that only a small number of the users calling for removal of @She behave in a vitriolic or openly offensive manner.
