    Non-territorial modding is fine for elinminating swearing & links to bootlegs etc, but perhaps more 'complicated' modding should be left to the specific forum mods, as in the past.

    Which is generally the rule we follow. Some obvious flaming can be non-territorial, although banning lengths often go back to the forum mod.

    "In general, what should moderators do about this in the future?"

    With the general case of "moderators," absolutely nothing differently. However, there might be a couple, two, three mods or so who might want to handle situations like this a bit differently than they maybe have been.

    IMO, the pendulum may have come a bit too far over towards an extreme with respect to having to be ultra-sensitive to people's delicate psyches. It is fine (and generally required) to have respect for people's opinions. But, it's a bit different to have to step on eggshells around someone's post which is so completely and thoroughly idiotic that the entire forum became dumber for it having been posted.
