You guys have no idea how good we have it here. The mods on this forum are actually reasonable! And mostly, once regular users become moderators here...they are arguably noticeably even more responsible and neutral than before.
On some of the other non-car forums I frequent...man the moderators are waaay too involved: voicing their OPINIONS on ALL threads as FACT, and any non-conformers/dissenters must apologize or head for the hills.
So yeah, it's a little off topic, but I'd much rather get a friendly infraction here and there, learn my lesson, laugh it off, then have to constantly apologize to moderators for differing views and fear the banhammer.
