    Suggestion: Ignore Moderator

    Not talking about Supermods, but it would be nice if we could ignore specific moderators ( with a limit of 2-3 ) on the forums and get a flag placed on our accounts that made it so those specific mods could not handle our posts and they were deferred to other moderators for review. There's a lot of mods at the moment who are unable to separate their politics from their ability to moderate. Because of that, I think such a feature would improve the nature of the forums if there was a more visible form of ensuring when a post is disciplined, it is done so by someone who is not completely unhinged or politically biased.

    I've based this suggestion large part out of a concern for the conduct Edge- showcased in this thread

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...how-continues/

    And this one which is as far as I can tell against the Law. Specifically, 18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government

    Thanks for reading.

    Mind linking to the actual posts, rather than to a 30 page long thread?
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
    Man is not free unless government is limited.

    Just no ... if a moderator isn't doing their job, then they shouldn't be a moderator. If they are doing their job - then they should be let do their job.

    Also - just because a moderator gets a decision wrong once in a while, doesn't mean they are failing - it just means they are human, and unpaid humans at that.

    I don't see the part where Edge is unable to moderate effectively due to political stance.

    I'm sure if Edge's political views aligned with his this wouldn't even be open right now.

    Why would it have to be political to be biased?

    Or the poster is bitching about getting a well deserved infraction and chooses to believe it's because of the evil moderator persecuting him for ideological reasons rather than take a moment for introspection.

    Cough cough.

    People act on their own behalf and others whether they are paid or not. Most of time because of not.

    Most of the moderators here are pretty good, even though I really dislike some of them.

    In fact most of the times I have been suspended it has been a different mod than the ones in the thread who did it, which I don't know is intentional, but if it is it's good policy. You can be biased without meaning to be in the heat of the moment.

    Is that because you don’t like the OP or because you simply disagree?

    But Edge isnt a General Off-topic mod or Politic one? so why should it matter what he posts in those areas

    Publicly discussing moderation goes against the forum rules, are you sure you are not discussing bans that happened because of disrespecting the rules like you just did?

    The problem isn't ignoring moderators but rather that they should face a review system. I've never seen a moderator get demodded..

    Accountability is a good thing.

    Review systems can be like using oil to put out a fire. I might not like what cops do that doesn’t mean random idiots should be allowed to vote on them.

    It should be black and white with and objective judgment.

    Edge- can be a disgusting human at times, but where in that thread did he (or she?) do anything wrong? You tried to make it about racism, but it simply wasn't there. Also, Edge- isn't a mod in the politics forum, nor was a mod action taken in that thread (unless I missed it). What really is the problem? If you disagree with a mod's action, take it up with a global.

    This site has enough toxic members. Allowing trolls to ignore actions by mods will not be helpful.
    Only a great fool would vote for a lunatic. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the candidate on the Right.

    But they must have known I was not a great fool, and would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the corrupt candidate on the Left.

    I'll never understand how some of you let moderators get under your skin.
