Where did a bunch of the Moderators go?

I've spoken to 3 (now-ex) Mods, who stated they were sacked.

Given their years of commendable service to THR, how serious are the offenses?

I should have added to my post that some moderators have been booted in the course of this - uh - unpleasantness.

Hello. My leaving was voluntary and with no pressure whatsoever from either "side" in this issue. I had been considering it for quite a while.

Best.

And quite the loss it was. Sorry to see you go. :(

The quality of THR has been diminishing lately (last 3-6 months or so). I thought it was just me, but in the last few weeks I've read posts about the unpleasantness mentioned above, and that explains a lot.

I find myself spending less time on THR lately as a result.

Are you stirring the pot or is the pot stirring you?

The "sacking" of moderators was limited to one person. Another handful have decided to "hand in their keys" without being asked and with being asked to stay. They're still here, just not as mods.

Your statement of only one mod removed, seems in direct contrast to Oleg's; wheras he states:" ...He also removed most of the staff who opposed him."

I don't know what you mean about the pot, as I have no control over the program which may, or may not, count my submissions.

As for my join date, I finally decided to take the plunge and register after trolling the blog the past 2 years.

It will show if they are still posting here at THR. You did not have to start a thread saying you have spoken to 3 mods without giving their names. Not sure why any mod would tell your they were sacked, given mods here have always been volunteers. Especially not sure why you need to speak for 3 unknown mods, given most mods post on other forums, have their own blogs, and have lots of other outlets to express their point of view themselves.

I finally decided to take the plunge and register after trolling the blog the past 2 years.Your word, my emphasis.

Since you registered, I assume you read the forum rules, including the one prohibiting one person having more than one user account.

This thread started off with an untruth - three mods were not "sacked", and I seriously doubt they said they were. As hso stated one was indeed forced out by Derek, and that was a travesty, but water over the bridge at this point.

Any further discussion on this topic can only lead to more dissension, and that's what we need the very least of at this site.

See Oleg's post at http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=398028 asking everyone to quit stirring the pot.
