The moderators are volunteers from the forum. By definition they have an interest in the case, and will have views that they wish to express. Why on earth would anyone want to go through the thankless task of moderating this form and not be able to post?
My view is that all of the moderators do an truly excellent job, and I for one would wish to thank them.
I note above that you object to the election of one of the candidates. I am afraid that is what sometimes happens in a democracy. Tough!
An election where the rules were changed throughout.
The only apparent reason why an election was 'called', was due to complaints by mccanns supporters about impartial moderation and aimed at sceptics, i.e. by some of your fellow supporters.
So your argument hardly holds up.
Secondly, I have been made aware from a previous Moderator, that Mods can also have another on screen I.D. on this forum, with which they can post their views.
