    something about posts intended to "roil and inflame" or some such? Hell, I recently got a post pulled for thanking somebody for wishing me a nice day.

    Disagree. Mods are members w/ good input. These days I hate seeing my favorite posters become mods b/c they inevitably withdraw from forum activity. (Rhino, CK, I'm looking at YOU.)

    I agree that moderators are some of the most interesting posters. However, I also agree that they need to be very, very reluctant to speak or act as a moderator in a thread in which they have taken a strong partisan stance. Might be a good time to get a second opinion.

    Really. That post basically says "I'm ideological on these topics", so people know engaging with him on those topics is a waste of their time.

    I didn't say it was an attack or contained ethnic slurs. I just wonder what value there is to the care cure site in general in leaving such a post unmoderated.
