Why was klapmongool warned for backseat moderation for this post? I think moderators need to discuss more between themselves before dealing out random punishments like this. klapmongool wasn't backseat moderation, he replied to a post that could be termed a racist offence.klapmongool wrote:You assume an awful lot about me. And yea, I could point at all the fallacies but I won't. And apparently you get to say things that if I say them I get warned for. Not exactly a good basis for a discussion.Kloot wrote:klapmongool wrote:

There is nothing to be won by dealing out punishments that you yourself think is fair, but that 90% of the community thinks is a farce. You just water down your own credibility. If you think this is wrong, then by all means explain why that was backseat moderation.
Before you think my post is also backseat moderation:
[quote]... relevant moderator actions or rules and policies are allowed provided they do not throw threads off topic or are done with excessive rudeness. We want to know how we can improve the way we moderate or things that we have missed, and we don't want to be flamed any more than anyone else.[/quote]
I think this thread is a relevant discussion on the importance of different aspects regarding what users want. Of course it is important to involve end-users in the design of the engine. What will you do with an engine without users? It's like the communist system where the central committee planned that 2 million left shoes should be produced but no right ones. That's pointless.
