Update to my original post:
Can I also remind everyone that mods/admins are members as well. We have opinions, and we will state them like anyone else. It seems people assume because someone is a mod/admin that they shouldn't be allowed to express their opinions, or that they cannot "take sides" in a discussion or debate.
One person suggested maybe mods/admins shouldn't moderate the sections they are most interested in because their interest leads to impartiality. Honestly, if that is the case and we can't play in the areas we enjoy (after all, the admins/mods are assigned to moderate areas they picked because those areas match with their interests and their ability to help out the most), or we can't have opinions, we might as well remove their admin/mod status so they can enjoy the board like everyone else.
Let this be a wake up call. Seriously.
Just because our user profile says Mod/Admin under our name doesn't mean every time we weigh in on a discussion we are throwing our weight around. Actually, most every time I've seen a Mod/Admin step in and do something as a Mod/Admin, they have made it clear that is the intent by signing the post as "Moderator/Admin" or other such language. The rest of the time, we're really just members.
