    Complaints about moderation are obnoxious and are killing the community

    Let's stop responding to complaints about moderation. Let's shun the complainers. Let them squeal as much as they want, just don't respond.

    Good idea.

    I disagree. It's not a good idea, it's a fantastic, great, stupendous idea! One I implemented some weeks back.

    You keep prattling on about "community".

    You've made less than 50 posts since you joined eight years ago.

    Over half of those are related to your latest gripe fest, so you probably average two posts a year.

    What the h*** do you know about community?
    You've contributed nothing to the site.

    First, learn more about the community. How can you serve if you know nothing of this culture? Your views are not unique.

    I'm afraid posts #5 and #6 do exactly what Dan suggested we stop doing.

    One of my favorite Zen stories is about 3 monks with a vow of silence. One says something and another monk says "You broke your vow, we are not suppose to talk!" -- then the third says, "Now look, both of you have broken your vows!"

    Shun means shun. It doesn't mean interact with.

    Re: Complaints about moderation are obnoxious and are killing the community

    Three Zen masters were on a mountain retreat for solitude. After three years one says, "The soup is sour." Four years later the second master said, "I thought it was too sweet." Eight years pass and the third master suddenly jumped up and stomped away screaming, "All you guys do is bitch, bitch, bitch!"

    And he was right!
