"sweeping all under the rug" is almost a guarantee that such things
will happen, again. Moderation is not a bad thing per se, it works
well at Lambengolmor and provides a very low noise level (100%
tattoo-free, indeed :) BUT (as I made clear both in a post and in
private email) there have to be transparent and fair rules binding for
all, not arbitrary decisions made by anonymous people acting behind
the scenes. Let's hope Elfling will return to such a policy.
Otherwise, I won't waste my time with it ("boycot" is a strong word
for a matter of course reaction).

decided suppression of disent was occuring that he/she would find
many other outlets to express that concern.
