Not that I particularly agree with it, but i guess the attitude is that it allows a contributor to post without his/her moderator hat on and post freely as the rest of us do.
case in point, Slim and Brian got in a bit of a tussle over Macs in a thread in the fine living etc board, and Slim asked something to the effect of 'is STFU your official moderator position' and had to PM to clarify whether he was talking to Brian the mac-user or Brian the mod.
I guess you could say the Andymethod avoids this.
