Steve is "just another person" in CE. If he has a problem with someone there, he can take it up with a moderator.

Besides, I don't think anybody really wants any punitive measures or anything that serious... just that maybe Steve agree to give up CE moderating powers if he wants to be an active participant.
Just my two cents, FWIW. Being a mod is the least enviable, least enjoyable, most headache-worthy job in the world, I know.
EDIT: Oops, didn't realize the original thread in question was back in CE. Okay, I'll shut up now.
OK- last time. The only thread I have squirreled recently is the ghey bar thread. Because I thought it was in poor taste, j moved it back. No biggie.
Squirreled the other one because I thought I'd taken enough pummeling. Evidently not because when I moved it back, it started again.
I haven't made a post disappear in eons. At least a year.
I've timed someone out once and they deserved it.
I don't think I'm allowed freedom of speech in CE. Whether I have moderating privileges or not, when I say something controversial the first line of discussion is "but you're a moderator"! Everyone else gets to say pretty much what they want to say.
j has asked me to not post and moderate at the same time. As I said in the thread, I'd really rather not do either.
