I disagree with her about which mods are fair and balanced.

Think we need further analysis on the rep to posts ratio
Let's see now...

# Mod................Rep.......Posts.......Rep/post

1. Castro............1,305......5,319.....0.245
2. 22 yards.........1,845......8,655.....0.213
3. lost_inbroad....2,220....11,435.....0.194

It's a woman, Nicky, one of my favourite ex-posters a teacher
Amazingly the occupation with the most flouncers was that of teacher, the majority of whom have returned. The moral of the story is you can never stop learning on EF

Well, live and learn. Sounds like you were never a teacher's pet

I would agree that there is only 1 that is unfair, but would also bet 1,000 CHF that it's a different mod to the one you think is unfair.

Perhaps people prefer people that agree with most of that they say, however this can also be tediously boring, hence my discussions with the lefties

The other explanation is we use to have a max daily /weekly / monthly limit based on percentages, so posters he posted more 5 years ago had to go back & edit posts to become multi post responses. You do have a short memory, you have been around longer than I.

I would suggest that the comment regarding inflated rep does not come from a place of nastiness but bafflement. If a person who has quite often dished out some pretty nasty comments themselves enjoys such reverence and is even a mod, it may not sit well with those who disagree with how they conduct themselves. In my view, mods should be characterised by taking a fair and balanced view while not inciting the discord that you don't want here themselves.

Hopefully, my wording is sufficiently diplomatic to avoid getting into trouble.
I believe your wording is just perfect.

Itís all a totally pointless exercise.
How long have they all been members, during which time period, etc etc.

There are far too many variables so it is impossible to make any meaningful comparisons.

Should I repost the correlation Vs causation comic or would they just trigger v_ again?

Welcome back, Rufus. Just confirming that of course it's perfectly OK to have a self-deleted poster return to open a new account, especially if it's under a very similar name so there is no doubt who it is.

As long as members stick to the rules, naturally they're always welcome here. And last I heard, complaining about improper actions or unfairness is not outside the rules.
Thanks for the welcome. Yes that's what I understood too.

And there could be absolutely no other explanation? I mean, it's strange, all the mods at the top of the list that I posted have been around since the days of the posting cap...

When was the cap ended? Perhaps rep should be re calculated with a max of 5 points a comment either pos or negative.

Seems reasonable, could you ask your buddy Editor Bob to do this
