You....what?

I thought mods have more important stuff to do than randomly checking rep messages, unless those messages were reported....or maybe you checked something else? They're kind of "private"...I thought.

Nah. Apparently mods can look at rep messages.

The mods take bullying behind the scenes very seriously.
Normal forum rules apply to rep messages, this was stated by the one of the departed mods & the rule has not changed since.

No need to actively look, they are shown on the persons profile page, if the person does not have many user messages on their page they can bee seen without even scrolling. multiple Red blobs are easy to spot.

But they’re only supposed to do it if the rep comments are reported, not just to randomly look on the off chance that an offence has been committed.
At least that is how I understood the explanation when it came up in the past.

Correct, I sometimes have checked before giving a poster rep myself if I have done so in the last couple of days as the spread it around block does not prevent mods giving the same person multiple rep even the same day

Re: Deleting My Account

You can give as many red blobs and green blobs per day as you want, FMF.
I know because once a mod has red rep quite a few posts of mine in a thread in the same day, if I recall correctly. We've settled our little dispute later on, all is forgotten. (it doesn't even count anymore)
So these are the job's perks, eh?
Kind of funny....so have fun!

What’s that supposed to mean? Other than being condescending.

I mean I think we all know that certain mods actively read them, but that’s not how it should be.

But yeah, it was condescending, I agree.

And one of the existing mods read rep and banned someone, although it was reversed.

What we don't put up with in real life, mostly because we don't encounter people with certain personalities or ideas on a regular basis, we or at least some of us won't put up with on EF either.
Which group are you writing for, and could you please name the members so it's clear who shares your position? Provided they did explicitly authorise you, of course.

As for certain agendas: fine, you write your piece and allow others the space to take note of your opinion and make whatever they want out of it - who knows you might change their opinion. Or not. But that shouldn't be the ultimate goal of a discussion.
So what is?

Your memory is amazing! Since the person has since died perhaps it's time to move on.
