Thats exactly what she did when she deleted your post. Enforcing the rules. Accept the referees call, stop whining and move on.
You stop whining. She literally thanked the person I was replying to both before and after she deleted my post. Hence this thread.

Iím sorry you canít see the point. You can leave this discussion whenever you want. But please read if you stick around. Iíve said I donít care my post got deleted. Itís who did the deleting and what she tolerated from others on her side of the argument that I have a problem with. I have a problem that she missed an argument she was involved in. Try to keep up.

We have the solution for the perceived modding mobbing problems, put in Ticino Tom. Now there'll be no more "this mod did this", "that mod does that", we can unite behind our new ban happy overlord and bathe in the waves of unlimited groans.
No clique will be safe, no poster will go ungroaned.

We'll be begging for the old mods back again.

So Tom, you up for it?

Re: Biased moderation

If someone is 'modding' with their personal biases, then I think they're not a good mod. I've already experienced a mod targeting and trying to 'punish' me here simply because we have different political views (i.e. because I am not a Trump supporter). As soon as that person realized that I do not support Trump, their behavior toward me did a complete 180 and that person began to treat me the very opposite of how they had treated me before. I tried repeatedly to make peace with that person, but to no avail, and began to repeatedly notice that that person was using their position as a mod to try to 'punish' me in a rather passive-aggressive manner. I then left the EF for a while because of it and had considered deleting my account. It's a form of passive-aggressive bullying, essentially. And above all else, it's just annoying.

I normally enjoy using the EF but as someone else pointed out recently in (I think) a different thread, the EF has felt extremely divided lately. And sometimes it just feels frustrating to be here because of it. It's fine if people have different opinions, and in fact I think that it's completely natural. But when people start trying to bully or target others on here simply because they have differing opinions from their own or have them labeled in their minds as someone they don't like and then use their status as a mod to try to target or 'punish' that person, that's when it crosses the line and begins to feel like primary school.

Also, I think that putting much stock in "rep" in an online forum is a bit lame. This is an internet forum. It's not primary school, and it's not a popularity contest.

Because there's at least one mod who very openly flaunts left wing views at least as much as MC does right wing.
I pretty much agree with your points except this - but I understand why it seems like it. I am far from a right winger. Robogobo's one post was simply uncivil and the move had nothing to do with political opinion, modding never has.
