You make some good points and I think that Spirit agrees with some of that as well, considering that he was originally looking for low key people to moderate forums that they had no vested interest in, but he offered this system and not many people took him up on it. If people had signed up when the original call went out then we wouldn't be having this discussion. I don't spend much time on the Iodine forum where some of the problems/complaints seem to be coming from, but I haven't noticed any big changes in curezone. I've never had a post deleted, edited or moved - either before or after the change in moderators. I think for a lot of us, life is going on as normal. To me it is not that big of a deal. We need to keep everything in perspective. People are dying in wars and starving to death around the world. While the ongoing drama(s) that seem to be going on around here can be titilating, I don't pay that much attention to it. Some people can never be pleased.
