Like I mentioned in a previous post, you can't really control how many subscribers your subverse gets. If the topic of your subverse suddenly gets popular, why should the moderator be punished? And how can you even know if a moderator will be corrupt? This is a case by case scenario. Not all mods go power hungry. The "good" mods shouldn't be punished due to the paranoia of corruption.

why should the moderator be punished?

The fact that you think losing mod powers in punishment is the problem. Not being a mod doesn't ban you from contributing to the sub or discussions, so losing it shouldn't mean anything.

How is that a problem? A moderator creates a subverse with a vision in mind, with certain rules in place. The moderator spends his free time building up the sub so s/he can bring more people into the discussion. Suddenly the subverse gets popular and the moderator is voted out and the newly elected moderators have a different vision in mind.

How is that fair? Suddenly all the hard work is gone.
