This is largely a repost: To the staff of TFN, I honestly think tonyf should be re-appointed as an Admin. While I appreciate that if you are going to have rules then they should apply to everyone, I think that there has to be a certain flexibility where members of tonyf's standing and calibre are concerned. It is not in the best interests of the JC to apply a 'mandatory' sentencing mentality when it is quite obvious that in the current situation the punishment does not fit the crime. I just don't think that members who have been around as long as tonyf and have contributed as much should be demoted for a harmless rule infraction or for a moment of poor judgement. In fact, if you read that thread it is hard to even point to a particular post of tonyf's that warrants a demotion. I realise that a line has to be draw but it seems to me that no line was crossed. I believe that his contributions as a moderator outweigh any perceived 'damage' that may be caused if he remains an Admin. I don't think anyone who has been here for more than five minutes can argue with that. This place needs all the help it can get. Tonyf's contributions to the JC over the years should serve to mitigate the severity of his punishment and should have been taken into consideration when his 'punishment' was decided upon. I hope others in the JC feel the same way.
