When trying to exercise the option to ignore a poster, I got this message Sorry ***** is a moderator/admin and you are not allowed to ignore him or her. A few years ago on another discussion board, I noticed some of the moderators and administrators that participated in debates abused their positions by violating the very laws they were supposed to enforce. Which brings the question....if you find the postings of moderator/administrator is particularly offensive and/or obnoxious, why should they be exempt from the rules and consequences other posters are? And if said offender decides to "flame" other posters or just use negative reps as a revenge factor, are all other posters allowed to do the same. Fairness and objectivity should be the hall marks of a moderator/admn. Being totally subject to the same rules and regulations as every other poster in discussion would ensure fairness and objectivity, and make for a better discussion atmosphere.
