I’m not very active as a moderator and have only recently taken a close look at what’s been going on in regards to you. I’m not communicating here from some lofty moderator position. In fact, I hereby recuse myself of any moderator input in dealing with your situation as it may go forward.
@Al_Kafir, from what I can see, the only real “community opposition” to moderation comes almost exclusively from yourself.
My experience of you is that you regularly edge up to (and often step over) the lines of civil interaction in a way that baits others into emotional reaction. I don’t know if you do this on purpose or not, but I seem to remember that you have even acknowledged the tendency a time or two in the past, when you and I have bumped heads.
From the receiving end it’s often a good thing to be put through such a workout. It tests one’s reasoning in the face of adversity, when your buttons are being pushed. Cheers! As frustrating as I’ve found some of our engagements to be, overall I’ve benefited.
What’s been going on here is different. What you are engaged in here has the flavor a destructive vendetta towards a group of individuals who are very much trying to do the right thing, who are donating a lot of time and effort to be fair and act in the best interest of all concerned, and who are human, and thus get annoyed when their well-displayed integrity is assaulted in the way that you are doing.
But even through that annoyance, they are still being extremely fair with you.
If there is a “sides” situation here, I ask you to take a close look at what you, yourself, are doing to further it, if not create it. Maybe it’s not all someone else’s fault.
