There has been some discussion lately about the removal of a couple mods.
Shadow333 was removed by his request when some of the mod rules changed to accommodate the changing dynamics of the website.
tankgrrl was removed because she was intentionally causing problems with the mods in hope of getting banned, to gain sympathy and attention to drag people to yet another failing site of her own.
Shadow333 was a good mod, but as the site and the ranks of membership grows, rules have to change to accomidate the changes. And with each change and each new rule there will be some moderators who do not agree with them and who will request to leave. That is part of the normal growth of any site, and Shadow333's contributions will be sadly missed. He did a good job as a moderator and his contributions will live on in the site.
Saddly, I gave tankgrrl just to many chances, time and time again I allowed her to remain a moderator when I shouldn't, and that was my fault. I was mistaken that she could change and be able to handle even the smallest amount of responsibility. The inability to think with a clear head, and the intentional favoratism of members and leaking of private mod information required me to remove her. She stated publiclly that she would no longer be using her tankgrrl account and that her only reason for remaining on the site was to cause problems.
