 I did not say or imply this. Obviously I will not be moderating rgcc or
anything else.. I implied any related problems from CCC which spilled over and
if they were brought to my attention that as a result made the life of a CCC
member here so difficult he could not participate in these boards. Another
example would be where as a result a post here, that member was harrassed
repeatedly in email, and as a result he/she complained to me. Obviously the
moderator (in my view) has to do something about this.

 So, while a moderator would ideally like only to focus on CCC and nothing else,
in practice this will not be so, and there will always be exceptional cases.

 A moderator by necessity has to keep all options open, and not be forced to
admit to some narrow viewpoints. At least that's how I feel.

 How does saying being understanding and not a hot head rule out objectivism and

Making baseless and provocative assumptions and reasoning is not an intelligent
way to communicate.

>I say this with a smile...

 Well, then please do not smile while making ludicrous statements.
