Many of the comments here amount to mods saying "if the mods are screwing up and you call us out publicly, we'll lock the thread. People that call us out in ways we don't like are the real problem." I'd suggest that if one can't take criticism, and even an occasional questioning of their motives (whether unfounded or not) one shouldn't be a mod.
Lies are not criticism.
This thread could have done without the sentences that were made up by OP and Kirby, so that staff can focus on the rest instead of having to debunk conspiracy theories.
None of what I had issues with had anything to do with 'mods screwing up'. It had to do with things that never happened.
