    Wow what a shift, we go from very lax moderation.....to over moderation.

    I thought it was heavy-handed. Just a bit of advice: A mod should never moderate a topic in which he is so heavily involved. It smacks of his using his authority to "win" the thread.

    I agree. The heavy hand of authoritarianism seems to have come to OCDO. This one will probably be closed as well.

    They should have a member only section where people can pitch a complain...so it isn't so public.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Personally if I was a mod I would have closed that thread also, it had no real purpose except to covertly and not so covertly criticize the moderators and administrators of this sight.

    I joined this site a long time ago, and even though I don't post much at all, I still remember the mods that this site had back when I joined. Because everybody knew who they were, there was a **** storm every time somebody got their post edited or had their thread locked, it became such a problem that all moderators were removed from this site and the admins had to take over that task. I know how much of a headache that can be for a site administrator to do when they have other obligations that must be met also so I am happy to see that they are bringing back moderators as this site could definitely use some full time moderation.

    Have a nice day and stay safe....

    Like so many things in life, it will always be an evolutionary process. We try but there will always be room to improve.

    Looks like I missed one.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.
