Have you looked at the forum you moderate lately....?   Those in glass houses.... 

Jmt has been doing a fine job thus far.

I agree. MLW was basically wrecked by over moderation. It drove lots of people away, and made conversations much more difficult. Not only was the moderation far too enthusiastic (and arrogant) but it was and remains unpredictable and inconsistent.

Now there is a time and a place to do something about thread drift. I admit that. But you can handle that administratively. If there are a couple of people jabbering on about something completely extraneous to the topic while others are trying to discuss the topic you split the damned thread. And if it's just some **** who is trolling and keeps trying to pull things off-topic you just delete everything they post and tell them to shut up.
