of a certain group of mods and they rode the range as only Texas cowgirls can. And sometimes there love of power and the ability to create the appearance of not being who they were (several times over)allowed them hide messages for fun and spite.
Then it was decentralized so this activity is not so prevalent, but it can be managed with a certain amount of history or longevity on the moderators scene.
The decentralization provides a little dilution of power
But the best way to do it is with identities known, that way if there is an issue one can address it directly. So intent are some not to take responsibility for their actions behind the scenes they have many guises with which to moderate
(this is not for you Hopsino, most of us have known)
Of course the activities of some moderators are not akin to any moderate behaviors what so ever. This happens often when certain persons are online while certain persons are off line. And to a certain extent still occur.
This gave birth to another serious credibility issue with the site. For those who love it and have given so much, including the immoderate moderators, their own resentments and jealousies tear it down. the internal squabbles are evident to the outsiders ( non CZ"family" members)
The site is a mess of ego and covert actions and "grey" areas
It is evident no matter how much the insiders think they are hiding, it spills out in really bizarre and not so nice behaviors
***********Please move this to the Webmaster Debate forum if it is not as supportive as you deem it should be
FYI, this is the real supportive behavior from someone who understands and sees the possibility of such a site without all the commercial competition among the creators of the site all the way down to San 2006, who would like to make a living or supplement her living with inversion tables
