Nate: The e-mail idea is good. However, I think you pinpointed one of the problems that's at the core of this matter, namely, the amount of time our esteemed administrators put in here. If this whole episode has taught us anything, it's exposed a severe dearth of communication between the folks at the top, the folks in the middle (you guys) and the folks at the bottom of the pyramid (us). It shouldn't have gotten to the point where we'd have to e-mail a staff member; this is a board matter and should have been resolvable on-board, not in some tangential offline discussion. What's the point of a Communications forum if we can't get a hold of an admin when we need one? Ancillary to that issue, though also at the core of this matter (and more important to this particular discussion), is the question of whether by their [apparent] absense these admins have any real idea or sense of what this little Internet community is all about. Maybe if they actually posted here more, they'd understand the stresses in the structure that have been exposed by tony's demotion. Or maybe had they solicited the council of you mods, we wouldn't be at this point. Who knows?
