I'm not the one stirred up over the cop analogy, but analogy was inaccurate. I
just hope two of the moderators in the future can get together and agree on a
policy of how the moderation should be handled. As of now we have three
standards, one for each moderator that is on duty. Under this policy when
Fernando was on duty, I guess he could reinstate the post you deleted. I hope
you can see the illogic in such a standard that we have now. Two of you must get
together someway and set one standard, so the members know what can and can not
be posted.
