    Several people have been harassed by forum moderators in the public forums and nothing is being done to stop this abuse of position.
    Maybe this should be stopped.

    They certainly appear to be using jack boots to squash flies this weather. They need to have their reins pulled.

    I agree.

    With power must come some responsibility.

    I've never understood why russ puts up with this?

    And with brown you mean...? No..? Disgusting, if I may say so...

    Aren't we all paying Russ for his good work? (Or having a good free ride?) Why are we paying if we don't think so? If we're here just to debate, why not go elsewhere better place? Answer: Because we like it here. As it is. Because of the good work Russ's done here, what he has given us. So why growl?

    There is no question that we all like playing chess here. ( I am signing up for two more years)

    I think the quesion is about how some of the modding is done, and this issue has come up before. Are all the disgruntled people wrong Fabian? You really don't have to answer, we know that you are very happy with the modding.

    One thing this did make me think of that is slightly annoying is how whenever you get sent a message by the forum moderator it auto deleted as soon as you leave the page.

    We are discussing the forum moderation and are not the quality of online chess. Very Rusty has said it all by committing to a further 2 years - the chess is the best available online.
    The forums are in my and others opinion over moderated and the majority of the results of over moderating are not communicated to the member/s other than a note suggesting that they were out of line.

    Answer to Very Rusty and Mctayto (and others having the same ideas):

    I see that we have better mods and worse mods. But I have also seen Forums elsewhere with no mods at all, and those places I wouldn't like to be very long. I'm glad we have moderators at RHP.

    If you don't like some moderator in particular, then notify Russ about it via personal PM. And if he agrees with you (plural), he will do something about it. I have confidence in Russ.

    I see a bigger problem, and that is some members trolling (and accuse others for trolling). I see mods as protection of this. The problems I've had, some have bean dealt with, just by alerting the moderator via link.
