I've been a member on a number of forums in the last 10 years, even been a mod on few of them. All I can say the moderation here is amazingly relaxed
, and the shit people can get away with is sometimes mind-boggling. It took years of hard-core trolling before some of the worst trolls on the board were finally removed. If anything mods should be stricter sometimes, not more lenient. All those who were permabanned deserved it 5 times over.
I don't know what forums have you moderated but speaking of tennis forums, you should go sometimes to Tennis Warehouse (Second to MTF arguably) and see what relaxed moderation really looks like.
