There is something very important to keep in mind, and I want to thank you for taking a moment to consider what you see from different
Almost without exception (exceptions come when something is so blatant as a violation, it speaks for itself.) things are done at ATS as a group and
with a consensus among more than one person, with regard to Moderator actions.
It's rare someone sees a thing done, and is actually looking at just the one person they see saw the name in U2U notification for. Very likely,
there were 3 or 4, and sometimes more people directly involved with whatever the issue may have been, before action happened.
This is something I found it very helpful to know and keep perspective with as things happened over the years I really wondered about the wisdom for.
Sometimes...consensus isn't reached at all, and that does happen. I imagine that leaves a touch of confusion at times for what is and isn't seen as
done, as well. It can't be helped while trying to have as fair a system as it's possible to have for everyone.
That's my small effort to pass on the favor of context I certainly appreciated the few times I saw a member of staff take a moment out to explain the
above and how one aspect of things here function.
