Is Michael a moderator on this forum now? It's interesting that he won't answer my private message asking the same, and quietly deleted the previous thread without explanation. What is the problem with simply informing the participants of this forum whether or not it has a new moderator? Is that some kind of threat to be asked who our moderators are? Why is a moderator -- who admitted many times over he had no bearing over our subforum here and routinely baited posters with partisan rhetoric and personal jabs -- suddenly handing out infraction points and bannings? Can anyone in power here please answer this very simple question? I don't see what the problem is.
