A week ago, an announcement made by Head Moderator Miguel Zorro stipulated a new mod structure that clearly puts himself in a position of absolute power among the moderators, with his most "faithful followers" in makeshift positions of power. Concerns were raised and quickly belittled; their authors unnecessarily incriminated and villainized. Even mocked. The fact that it was a thread posted under the "Website feedback" category was conveniently disregarded, with the constant claim that it was just an announcement thread and feedback had no place in it.
But if we care about this community, it is only natural that we raise concerns whenever we see anything happening that seems questionable. It is critical that we do not hold back when asking the very important questions, that we voice our disagreements and, if it comes down to it, denounce abuse. Not privately as those in power would want us to, but as publicly as possible. As one of the main reasons public channels exists, is to keep those on top in check.
After all, it is our much beloved community, the one being used to play power at.
PS - The Mod feedback thread counts as private because only few people care about it.
