In all honesty, this site has the WORST moderating team of any site that I have a membership too. EVEN GLENN BECK'S WEBSITE HAS BETTER MODERATING. I got a ban there (for "trolling"), appealed it, & was shown to in the right. And so they lifted it,... and that was all within in 24 hours (I also got an apology). I wish I was lying, but this place is more oppressing than Glenn Beck's. I don't care about whether or not some untrained, no-brained MOD considers AOG a troll or not, the community respects him. There is no ban warranted because he isn't hurting anything. (BTW, MODS don't have a definition for "trolling." It's whatever suits their purpose)

You're in the right. Once people get their MOD status they go through... like a break-in period where they try to find out how best to use their powers. They act like a super-hero who wont let you cross the street outside of the crosswalk... Most of them ease up a bit over time, and let you cross against the lights, but they still show no training whatsoever. They can be pretty unpredictable. And when you talk about an "air of superiority" here's some LOVO quotes:
I dont get my kicks out of banning people for no reason.
Sure that rule wasnt there. But the rule existed.
(this was him talking about a rule that only existed in the MODs private forums, and his enforcement of it)
As you have been told countless times...If you feel that you were wronged (which you obviously do) that to take it to Insomnia red or an admin.
He quite literally followed this with:
And you will find mods defending me as yer we do stick together. As we do become friends otuside of the public boards.
And this is probably what we complain about the most... it's remarkable to hear a moderator confess to it, but no matter how ridiculously shitty their excuses are, they always stick up for each other. The appeal process here is a myth. If Richard the Lionheart had commanded this much loyalty from his troops Palestine would be speaking English today.

More mod comity for you.
