what is flag's moderation policy?
who are the moderators? i see that some are listed on the index page, but dinsdale appears to have moderation authority as well, but is not listed.
if a moderator violates the moderation policy, what are the consequences? (this happened before with morpheus, he voluntarily stepped down as a moderator after removing posts "to make a point.")
my preference is for a heavy prejudice towards open expression to the extent possible, along with an understanding that the personal preferences of the individual mods will not interfere with the execution of the policy. (in other words, if a mod is uptight about sex, they need to get a grip and not censor posts which are related to sex.)
i've moderated discussion before. i know full well that there is a tendancy to roll one's eyes and complain that "hey, i'm a volunteer here and i help get rid of spam so dont fucking question my actions!" but if a mod is engaged in indefensible censorship simply because they have personal issues, i think it needs to be brought up.
