I would add two more things, firstly the modding decisions are made in regards to the best interests of the forum and all its members and with the rules of the forum in mind. Generally these actions are taken are not up for public discussion but the members have to trust that the mods are acting in accordance with the above.
The second point is that none have to use the forum and if it does not suit you, then don't use it, but if you do use it then you have to abide by the rules of the forum to which you agree when you join, which means you have to abide the decisions of the mods.
There are other forums and if they suit you better than this one, then exercise your free will and leave. If enough members feel the same way as Steve (Harry the Mole) and leave because they do not like this forum, then it will either change or it will cease to be.
