Gay-Len, the majority of the Mod Squad acknowledge that LMM has screwed up in this situation. I don't think anyone's denying that, hence, the 2 day ban and 1 week demotion. Whether that verdict is altered to better fit the crime, is up to the LC. I agree with you that LMM abused his Moderator status, and is deserving of a demotion -- but I still believe in giving people second chances. The key here is how LMM reacts to this whole situation upon his return. That's why I suggested a month demotion, if only to provide a greater time period in which the Mod Squad and LC can monitor, reflect, and decide whether LMM is deserving to recieve his Moderator status back. Whether a one week demotion provides enough of a evaluation period is my only problem at this stage. In anycase, the Administration will no doubt be following LMM's future actions. Hopefully, nothing like this ever happens again, and we'll all live in peace and harmony (yeh, right), but even if another problem does arise in the future, be it LMM or someone completely different, you can rest assured that the consequences will be greater, if only from the warning that this situation has provided.
