It's been my pet hate for a time period that goes back to the very 
very early fidonet days, but back then, real mods were the only ones who 
moderated, it was more friendly and fun (and no I was never a moderator on 
fidonet), but the professional yet fair way they did things way way way 
back then, hrmm... early 80's IIRC, may have moulded me into the 'defender 
of the lil guy' against the bullies, that I am today.

If moderators did their job, and enforced the rules to the letter, and 
warned/suspended/removed the wannabe net cops, it would be a much more 
friendlier place, every list will be, usenet however, well, we all know 
that can't be controlled, most ISP's have not honoured cancels since the 
early-mid nineties when a couple of mods had a dummy spit and started 
cancelling everyones posts for no reason.

Its a turn off to any community.

well some may be MSCE's... but I wouldn't go that far :)

Just goes to show M$ do see Linux as a real threat, we should in fact be 
honoured by the FUD that M$ try to spread.
