None of us has been able to see the content, so it would be hard to argue with
this method. :-)  The impression I'm getting from the thread is that the content
wasn't, though.

>2) The poster is protected because he's a moderator.

IMO this would be a ridiculous argument to make.  Regular member activity and
moderator responsibility are separate notions.

This would be more obvious if you three did as some other web boards do: use
your own account (e.g. Bruce Moreland) when posting regular message, and use a
moderator account when making a post regarding moderation of a thread (like
KarinsDad "let this thread die" post.)

>3) The deletion process was not proper.

The deletion process is up to you three.



Well, three strikes, I'm outta here. :-)
