That can happen even with only one moderator. Do you think Laurelai wouldn't ban based on comment histories if he was the only moderator of a sub? The problem is that once such a moderator gets into position, there's no way to get rid of him (or her, as is more often the case).

Yeah, of course a single moderator can be a problem if he/she deletes content just for disagreeing with someone. However, it seems that smaller subreddits still use common sense. However, the bigger subreddits get like 20 mods, so since they don't have much to do, they just come up with all those nonsense rules.

A subreddit/subverse moderator should only delete content which is illegal (for example, child porn), spam, and content which has nothing to do with the subreddit/subverse (and in this case, maybe it would be better if the mod could just move the post to the correct subreddit/subverse).
