Not really. But the title of the thread gets at what I'd like to talk about (innovative, no?) I'd like to hear the reasoning behind not being able to publically question or take issue with the colored comments of mods and admins. A couple things come to mind as possibilities, but I'd like to hear from you (or be pointed to a thread where it's been discussed), if you'd be willing to pull back the curtain a bit. What really made me think about this was the recent CAF thread, where some of the tactics for silencing critics and dissenters was touched on. Not that I think oc.net bans people for flimsy reasons, or worse does so secretly. Nonetheless, as good as oc.net is at allowing freedom of expression (and I've been particularly aware of, and appreciative of, that graciousness), there still does seem to be some restrictions on the freedom of expression when it comes to moderatorial happenings. So, again, rather than speculating about the reasons, I'd like to hear the reasoning from you fine people.
